On Monday afternoon, our Publicity Director, Bryon Fear and General Stage Manager, Chaz Doyle caught up with our builders Ash Contracting Ltd. at the Old Fire Station in West Norwood to get an update on the building works. Like these visits in the past, it was evident that a lot of exciting progress has been made at the site but there have also been some discoveries that have slowed down the works a little which now unfortunately means a later finish date.

On Thursday evening at the Rosendale Pub in West Dulwich, SLT held its 50th AGM followed by the 43rd AGM of the Members Club. The evening was extremely well attended and there was an anniversary cake to celebrate the club’s 50th year. Members generously donated to a raffle draw organised by Jeanette Hoile and members also gave a donation per slice of cake. At the end of the evening there was still half a cake to be had and so […]
In our production of Tom Basden’s The Crocodile which we staged last week at Stanley Halls, there was a silent movie section which we filmed in Crystal Palace Park. Some of our audience requested that we post the film online … so here it is – for those of you that couldn’t make the production, here’s a little glimpse of what you missed.
The Crocodile opened on Tuesday night to a packed house who were kind enough to leave these lovely comments about the show. Our production of Tom Basden’s hilarious comedy is on until this Saturday. Tickets are available here.
The World’s Wife opened on Tuesday night to a small but appreciative audience who left some great feedback. Our production of the Carol Ann Duffy anthology is on until this Saturday tickets are available here.
Foxfinder by Dawn King opened last night to a full house and here are some of our first night audience’s reaction to the play which is on until Saturday, April 22 at Stanley Halls.
Our play this week is the Brian Friel classic, Dancing at Lughnasa. Friday and Saturday nights have sold out and there are limited tickets for this evening so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Here is what some of our audiences have though so far. Dancing at Lughnasa is on until Saturday, March 25 at Stanley Halls.
The restoration of South London Theatre’s Old Fire Station in West Norwood continues to forge ahead with many changes happening to the building and its structure since December last year. In our last fundraising update we revealed that we still had to raise £110k in order to fully restore the building including all floors. We continue to fundraise so that the building can be fully accessible to the wider community when we reopen our doors in the new year. Read about this month’s generous anonymous […]
The South London Theatre’s restoration of the Old Fire Station in West Norwood made the news this week when a crew from London Live came down to interview architect Paul Sharrock from Thomas Ford & Partners, Stuart Holbey from Heritage Lottery and our very own Tom Mathias & Jenny Mclaughlin who all talked about the project, which is being carried out by Ash Contracting Ltd, and what it means for SLT and the local West Norwood community.
The restoration of the Old Fire Station in West Norwood is progressing with continued momentum with many noticeable changes to the building’s structure taking place in the past month, with many more structural changes set to take place in the coming weeks. As you can see in the video, a lot of recognisable features of the building’s interior are now gone, as the spaces on the ground and lower floors have now been stripped right back.
