Welcome to the New FDC Website

It’s been a bit of bumpy couple of months for us with the website. In September, we were hacked. In October we were hacked again!!

After discussion it was decided to scrap the current website in its entirety and start again. And here we are Failand Drama Circle 4.0!

The site is still new, so you may come across some dead links, odd behaviour or silliness – if you do we’d be grateful if you could report to us via the contact page.
