Massively popular in its heyday, the Players' performed almost continuously for over 60 years, showcasing the talents of the cream of British theatrical talent - not just specialist acts, but also household names such as Peter Ustinov, Hattie Jacques, Maggie Smith, Clive Dunn, John le Mesurier and countless others. In 1953 the Players' featured in what was to become the BBC's longest running TV show - 'The Good Old Days'. After performing 'underneath the arches' of Charing Cross railway station for many years, the Players' finally shut its doors in 2002. Since then, it has continued to put on occasional shows throughout the year, mostly in London. For information, news and our current programme, please visit out website.
