The camera crew also spoke with Jenny Mclaughlin and Tom Mathias, members of the South London Theatre, to find out more about the group and its continued […]

A New Logo For A New Era

The South London Theatre – or rather the South London Theatre Centre as it was known when it was first set up in 1967 – has had a few logos over the years. Logos which have reflected the changing times, celebrated the club’s anniversaries and marked its longevity as a fixture of West Norwood. 2017 will mark SLT’s 50th year and to celebrate we will be creating a new logo for a new era. A logo that will be contemporary, effective across […]

Ash Contracting Ltd. who are in the process of restoring the building suggested to SLT that it might be a good idea to approach All City London, an organisation which lets artists know where there are permissible spaces where they can create […]
