Formed in 1999, Riccallish Allsorts is a local drama group who perform plays and pantomimes at the Regen Centre; their first performance rehearsal taking place the night of the great flood of 2000, which threatened to engulf the centre shortly after it had been opened.
They are an open society and always welcome new members either to act or help with stage crafts such as set-building, costume, light, sound, and stage management.
The group understands drama is often a new experience for members so do their best to give tasks that people feel comfortable with. Many members have started with small roles and have gradually developed as their confidence and abilities have grown.

Riccall Round Walks
There are two circular walks, both of around 5 miles in the pleasant and historic countryside in and around the village of Riccall. The walks can be easily combined into one walk of 10 miles. Thanks to additional funding by the Heritage Lottery, five new information boards have been placed at strategic points of the walk and within the village, giving historical information and any other information of local interest, so the heritage of Riccall can be shared with others.
Leaflets on the walks are available at Nisa, the Post Office, the Regen Centre, the Council Office and both pubs.
