The Heywood SocietyHeywood

The Heywood Society is the resident amateur dramatics club at Peterhouse. Heywood is principally a funding body for theatrical productions in Cambridge, at the Edinburgh Fringe, and beyond. The society also puts on shows in the beautiful 180-seat Friends of Peterhouse Theatre (FOP). We want to fund ambitious, high-quality, inclusive drama.

Recent Heywood productions have included 'A Doll's House' (FOP, June 2022), 'Loveless' (Edinburgh Fringe, August 2022), and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' (FOP, November 2022).

Feel free to get in touch by sending an email to if you have questions about show funding, theatre at Peterhouse, or Heywood’s involvement in Cambridge theatre more broadly.
