The Spring Grove Fringe


Spring Grove Fringe

An amateur, community drama group, founded over 30 years ago, based in the Spring Grove area of Kingston, with members from a wider area. The group usually stages four shows a year, most running for two evenings and including supper. One of the these is the annual pantomime, with extra local involvement. We also put on occasional play-readings and workshops.

Over the last ten years, more than £30,000 has been donated to local and national charities chosen by the members.

Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor comes to Kingston!

The fat knight farcically pursues Mistress Ford and Mistress Page and they take their revenge. He has to crawl into a basket with dirty laundry and be dumped in the Thames, to dress as a woman and be beaten by a cuckolded husband, to put on stag’s horns and be brought down to size by the villagers.
