Established in the village of Hartley Wintney, Hampshire, Hartley Arts Group (HAG) is now celebrating its 45th year.
Since its formation in 1975, HAG’s membership list has been growing steadily, most of them living in and around the Hartley Wintney area. Though we also have members in Wales, France, Australia and New Zealand!
In November of 2010 the old Hartley Arts Group unincorporated association dissolved and became Hartley Arts Group, a private charitable company, Company No. 7214087 and Charity No. 1136586.
What do we do?
HAG exists to provide something for amateur dramatists and musicians to get their teeth into. But that doesn’t just include acting and musical performance. HAG’s members encompass a variety of skills across the board to be able to produce high-quality and rewarding amateur productions, including directing, acting, singing, stage-managing, catering, carpentry, publicity, lighting, sound, painting, cleaning and anything else needed to put on a good performance.
However, the overriding theme of it all is FUN! Many people come along to be part of the social atmosphere of HAG – to get away from the everyday things they do at home and join in with the activities. Alternatively, some just prefer to come and see our productions. You don’t need to be able to sing – or dance – or act – or wield a paintbrush! Living close enough to come to rehearsals should do it!
Our address is: Hartley Arts Group, Victoria Halls, West Green Road, Hartley Wintney, Hook, Hampshire RG27 8RQ.
