Hello and Welcome to Noda NW. I am honoured and privileged to serve as your  Regional Councillor, and as a Trustee of NODA CIO and therefore your voice on the NODA ruling Council.  I am immensely proud of our North West Regional Committee which boasts a huge range of ages and experience, and believe that each and every one of us all truly demonstrate that we are all Inspired by Amateur Theatre.      

Our Region, which is split into 10 districts, stretches from the Solway Firth and Carlisle right down to Chester and North Wales Border and all points in-between.  We are justly proud that NODA actually originated in the North West founded in 1899 by A. P Bullfield,  the then Musical Director of Lancaster Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society, and even prouder to be able to say that Lancaster ADOS are still going strong and are still members of NODA.

Each year in May we hold our Regional Awards Dinners – two dinners over one weekend, one for the youth to celebrate and encourage the very many talented young people whom we trust will be the future of NODA for many years, and a second one for the Adults.  We also run a NODA NW Drama Festival – which runs over the entire year and is peripatetic
