Little Light

8pm February 7-11, 2017 Reminiscing. Once a year to tell stories. To share little bits of our little lives. A house by the sea. Teddy wants more light. He’s knocked that staircase down. Alison is soaked through. She’s livid. Clarissa’s ready to burst. It’s the day of the annual dinner. They can’t keep meeting like this. An explosive family drama that is dark, strange and often funny. It asks why is routine and ritual so important and can we ever let […]

Now that we’ve lost the Fairfield Halls until hell freezes over, give your […]

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 […]
