Michael Braithwaite was a very active member of the local amateur dramatice scene. He was heavily involved with the Crich amateur dramatics and when that ceased he joined the Holloway Amateur Dramatics Society (as did Barbara Haslam, another Crich amateur dramatics player). Eventually Michael joined the Wirksworth amateur dramatics scene.
