Old Fire Station Restoration: Project Update

It was a massive blow to our restoration project when our initial contractors pulled out back in May within weeks of the building works to begin. SLT immediately rallied the troops and began a renewed fundraising push to raise an estimated shortfall of £150,000 to secure the future of our theatre.

Submissions For Next Year’s Season

Submissions for next year’s season now include the period from July – December. Since SLT looks set to return the Old Fire Station in the winter of 2017, it makes sense to programme the whole year at this time rather than splitting the season into two. Whether you’re a first-time director or a seasoned pro and you would like to direct at any time next year, please get your submissions in as soon as possible. The deadline for submissions is midnight on July 31. […]

Group-Rate (Family Ticket) Trial for Family-Friendly Shows

This summer we are trialling group-rate (or Family ticket) for family-friendly shows held in the Main Hall at Stanley Halls. We hope that this will make it somewhat cheaper for families to come and enjoy selected shows, and because everybody loves a full house! The group-rate ticket admits a group of 4, where at least 2 members of that group would normally be eligible for a concession rate. Concession tickets may be purchased for under 16s, full-time students, senior citizens and the […]
