In the true tradition of Abberley Hall plays, the cast of 1934 and 1935 look as though they have been prepared by a professional wardrobe department! Richard Pelly said in his letter that he was unable to identify his Father in either of the pictures. All of the Abberley Hall magazines of the era still exist, so it may be possible to track down the names and roles of the cast. Many OAs will remember their performance in the School Play as one of the highlights of their time at Abberley. If you have a photograph or school play that you would like to share, please send it through to and we will share it with the rest of the OA community.
