About the Bar

Enjoy your Members' Club Bar

Welcome to your Bar page. This is where you can find out all the latest Members Club news and see what's on in the social, beating heart of The Old Fire Station.

The SLT Members’ Bar is a comfortable, welcoming space, open to all members to drop in whenever we're open. It's located in the basement of our historic building and run entirely by volunteers as a Members' Club.

Our aim is to coincide bar opening with all rehearsals, get-ins and get-outs and be available for members and their guests to drop in whether or not they're involved in those activities.

Volunteer in our bar

We can only open the bar if we have volunteers to staff it. We want to fulfil our aim to coincide with every rehearsal, get-in and get-out, as well as provide a host of fun socials, so that the bar is always open when members need it.

Talk to a bar volunteer next time you're in the theatre to find out more. If you've seen or been in a show at SLT, you'll doubtless have been served by one of our volunteers, so why not pay it back and support those working on upcoming shows? We'd love to show you the ropes.

There's no mental arithmetic or special skills required. The till works like every app on your phone and we only take card payments to make things even simpler. With just an initial training shift, you can be on your way to making a real difference.
