Alan Buckman Retires From His Post At SLT

alan-pantoLet 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 and of course talented costume designer – costumes that still prove popular for hire today. If you look carefully during next week’s production of Jack you will see Jenni Chadney in her own Buckman creation, that was actually her wedding dress !

Alan will be greatly missed and although he has decided that he does not want any fuss over his leaving, we are sure you will all join us in wishing him a very happy retirement.
