The New Hardy Players formed in 2005, at the request of Norrie Woodhall on her 100th birthday, to celebrate the work of Dorset’s world famous and much loved author and poet Thomas Hardy.
Over the past eight years, the Players have raised £31,000 for the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust, and £12,000 for local charities. We also helped the Dorset County Museum raise £58,000 to bring unique Hardy manuscripts back home to Dorset.
