Our amateur dramatic society was formed in 1948 by the Rev. W.A.D. Edwards, Vicar of Tipton. It was then named Tipton St John Players. The membership was made up from local people and plays were staged twice yearly. Plays were often "toured" in nearby Villages such as Sidbury, East Budleigh, The Manor Pavilion, Sidmouth and the "Town Hall" Budleigh Salterton. The society disbanded between the years 1966 and 1971 due to low membership numbers.

A separate Tipton society for Pantomime was amalgamated with Tipton Players in 2002 and the newly formed society became known as Tipton Players and Pantomime Society T.I.P.P.S

Since then the society has managed to stage One Act Plays, Musical Entertainment, Full Plays and a multitude of Pantomimes.
