The association of Reaction Theatre is based at Secondigny in the Deux Sévres and was formed as a local amateur dramatic group drawing its membership and audience from the Deux Sévres and the Vendée. The Association has now expanded to include a singing group called Keynotes, and a newly formed (2016)  Scottish Dancing group, the 'Out of Kilters'..

The Theatre Group

The aim of the group is to put on up to two productions a year, one in the  spring and one in the  autumn.  Most productions are performed in the theatre at Secondigny but occasionally performances may be held in other theatres. Our productions, intended for English speaking participants and audiences, are presented in English.


This singing group was formed so that people could sing regularly for pleasure and to give performances from time to time. We sing a wide range of English and French songs and meet nearly every Friday afternoon at 2pm (sharpish) in Fenioux at Le Café des Belles Fleurs. Come to a session and see if it’s your cuppa tea.

The Scottish Dancing Group ('Out of Kilters')

meet weekly on a Thursday evening at 7ish in Fenioux at 'le Café des Belles Fleurs'. Come to a session and see if it’s a ‘bru to your liking’.


So, something for everyone, well, lots anyway.
