We just moved to Lewes and my 18 year old daughter is looking to meet other teenagers. I was wondering if there is a drama group that you might be able to recommend. Thanks!

Oh dear. A DFL who doesn't know how this works yet. I'm horrified. It's like a lamb to the slaughter. Images of that awful scene in Fawlty Towers where Riley the incompetent builder is telling Sybil, "If the Good Lord had meant us to..." and Basil is cringing in the background because he knows how Sybil is going to react. I'm going to give her a like just to be nice! She's just been through a (probably) stressful move.

There's a youth theatre group at the The Lewes little theatre in Lancaster street. Otherwise I think 18 is too old for ones like kaledoscope which run summer classes.
You might also want to contact Sussex Downs College whioch may have some useful tips and the All Saints Centre for other local groups, but I think most of them may be for a younger age range.

Another welcome to Lewes GB! ignore the DFL jibe, it only exists on this forum, a few small minded people who can only express themselves under the cover of a pretend name.

Might be worth applying for a job at Glyndebourne. Meet friends and learn more about how it all works.
Confused is right; How does an original post (question) get 3 thumbs down?

I must say I have also never heard the DFL term used anywhere other than on this website! it is a myth perpetuated by a few grumpy people who use this forum!

It wasn't meant to be a jibe. I welcome GB. I'm not a parochial moron. I've just noticed the odd bit of lunacy on this site.

I first heard the DLF term about 20 years ago referring to newcomers buying property in Whitstable. Think it's fairly commonly used in lots of small market towns and not unique to Lewes.

I used to go to a great one at Cannon o'Donnell (however you spell it) back when I were a lad but sadly this building is now closed up.
Ignore the idiots on this forum, they give Lewes and its residents a bad name. (Although for a town that prides itself on independence & association with Thomas Paine, it's weirdly fearful of change overall)

Lewes has great travel links to Brighton and London if your looking for interesting things to do, a bus pass is probably the best gift you can get your daughter.
