Alan Buckman Retires From His Post At SLT

Let the 3rd of December 2016 go down in history as the day that the SLT loses one of it’s most prolific, multi-talented & committed members. We have the sad news to report that Alan Buckman will be leaving South London to enjoy his retirement in Grantham. A quick look at the SLT archive will show you just how much Alan contributed to the centre over decades. Everything from acting roles (78 to be precise!) to dialect coach, to writer, set design […]

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 […]

Hoardings Get Eye-Popping Designs

Over the weekend the hoardings outside of the theatre were decorated with some street art. Many members of the community who saw the work in progress were concerned that the hoardings were being vandalised, but they were in fact being adorned with some eye-catching designs. 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 […]

Jack: Christmas Extravaganza – What’s It All About?

Next week SLT stages ‘Jack’, a modern day fairytale sequel to Jack and the Beanstalk written by two of our members. Promising to be full of lots of panto fun and nonsense; it’s the perfect way to start the seasonal celebrations. We speak with Writer and Director Peter Stevens about the play. You’ve written Jack with Matthew Davies – how did you come up with the idea, and how did you work together? Pantomime is a British tradition, with its archetype […]

Interview: Siobhán Campbell, director of Bluebird

Next week SLT stages ‘Bluebird’, written by playwright Simon Stephens who penned the adaptation of ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ for the National Theatre. We speak to director Siobhán Campbell about why she loves his work and what audiences can expect from her production of ‘Bluebird’. You’ve directed a Simon Stephens play before. What is it about his work that attracts you to it? It’s the characters he creates – whenever I read something by him, I’m drawn […]

SLT Thanks the Norwood Society

This week the Norwood Society made a kind donation to the South London Theatre’s ongoing restoration project. SLT would like to thank them for their donation and the work that they do maintaining the heritage of our local area. The Norwood Society was set up in 1960 by some members of the local community who had the foresight to form an organisation that could protect the heritage of its local area and share with people its history. As well as the important […]
