The Cheshire Theatre Guild was set up in the 1960's (initially, Mid-Cheshire Theatre Guild) with the aim of uniting and supporting the growing number of amateur theatre societies throughout the county. From fairly humble beginnings it has provided amateur theatre in Cheshire with a robust network of information, courses, workshops, adjudications as well as its prestigious Awards for Excellence.
