Welcome to Red Spider Company
Red Spider Company is an amateur music and drama group which draws its membership from the communities in and around the Devon villages of Lewdown, Lifton and Bratton Clovelly. We enjoy working alongside professionals but also have the satisfaction of successfully producing a number of dramatic events written by our own members. To say we have fun is an understatement (oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is)! If you would like to join Red Spider Company, please click here.
Red Spider Commemoration project for July 2016 marks 100 years since the beginning of the Battle of the Somme (July – November 2016), the bloodiest encounter involving British troops on the Western Front since the beginning of the Great War in 1914. On 14th, 15th, 16th July 2016, at Lewdown Victory Hall, Red Spider Company will present a community drama about the event to be called “ALL THE FINE YOUNG MEN”. Written by Red Spider members and with authentic music of the time, and an accompanying exhibition, it tells the stories of six young men from this area, presenting something of the life-changing impact of the Great War upon them and their families and communities at home. A dedicated website for this project detailing more about events, background and with photographs too can be found at http://www.atfym.co.uk
