The Dymchurch Players

Stage Struck

Performing in Dymchurch Village Hall, May 27 - 29th.

Tickets on sale from The Smugglers Chest, you lucky people!

Well Goodness Gracious Me . . .

This has to be the least-expected Dymchurch 'appearance' ever.

Dick Barton - Special Agent

Dick Barton and co. (Jock & Snowy) race to recover the 'XB19' (a secret weapon) before it's passed to 'the enemy' - on Dymchurch beach!

You don't really get to see Dymchurch as - just some trees, some beach, some sea and a guest house. Nothing that actually resembles Dymchurch with any conviction.

The series was on Talking Pictures TV, at 8:30pm, weeknights, and may be on again some time.

Day of Syn 2020

Went Ahead, in its way

There was a showing of smugglers, soldiers and revenue men, with a cessation of hostilities (well, barring one hanging) due to prevailing conditions, to keep the tradition alive.

Here are some photos

. . . of the scary, ragged figures haunting Dymchurch. Oh, and some scarecrows.

“We did not forget to remember . . .”

Here're some memories of bygone Syns.

And I've found some more 'Return of Dr Syn' photos

Dymchurch in the National News - and the Countryfile smugglers feature.


Now Eastbourne has followed Hastings in losing it's pier (hopefully temporarily) Deal remains the local example.

What you’ll find here:

Information on the next Day of Syn, a little about the Day of Syn Society and a roster of the characters featured in the seven Doctor Syn books. (Well, four of them so far.)

The Night Riders, excise men, Dragoons and . . . carpenters; all reside within!

Eventually I will complete the character information, include daguerreotypes of the events at Dymchurch and details of the film and television versions of the books.

Hey, I’ve won an award!
