Christopher Loft is actively involved in community theatre in Bedford, both as professional writer and amateur performer.

His most recent script was for the short film Risk Takers and History Makers, which formed part of the exhibition of the same name at the John Bunyan museum and the Panacea museum, Bedford. You can view the finished film here.


For Bedford TIE, Christopher wrote Spear of the Gods and Ordinary Heroes.

His plays The Interview Stage and Responsible Product were performed in Stagewrite festivals in Bedford and The Interview Stage was given a short run by the Swan Theatre Co in 2015.

Loftybooks Drama Club produced  Rats! by Christopher Loft, with music by Andy Merrifield, in 2019 at a local primary school, following on from the success of Piggiwiggery, with music also by Andy Merrifield, in 2018. For further information on Loftybooks Drama Club, see below. 

Loftybooks Drama Club offers a service occasionally available to schools who would like an external provider to run an after-school club. We can provide a qualified drama teacher to deliver a series of workshops building to a production of a play at the end of one term. Any Loftybooks plays advertised on the Plays For Schools page can be offered as part of this service.

You can rest assured that a Loftybooks Drama Club teacher will be DBS checked and holds a First Aid certificate. Loftybooks is fully insured for this service.

Please note: at present, this is a very limited service that books up fast. Please email if you are interested. Prices depend on travelling distance and availability. There is currently some availability for Summer Term 2019.
