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.

At that time building contractors Ash Contracting Ltd, who had previously tendered for the project, were approached and a new period of negotiation began to formulate a new scheme of work that could be delivered […]

Casting Announcement: Bluebird

Siobhán Campbell, director of Simon Stephen’s Bluebird announces her cast: “The auditions for Bluebird managed to drag 47 theatrical types through the doors of Stanley Halls this month.

I won’t say Bluebird is unlike anything I’ve ever directed before, as that would be a lie. I imagine the process will be somewhat different though. Working with a cast of […]

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.

The deadline for submissions is midnight on July 31. […]
