To equip our new space in the newly-saved and refurbished theatre

by General Council of the South London Theatre in London, England, United Kingdom

The exciting refurbishment of the South London Theatre, celebrating its 50-year anniversary in 2017, is under way. Over the last 10 years our members have fundraised to ensure the building will be made safe and watertight so that it can remain in use for the community and its visitors. 

  

The South London Theatre home is a grade 2 listed building in the heart of West Norwood. It's the only Victorian Fire station left in London that has retained heaps of original features, and is a community icon and cultural gem! The heritage project has made the building fully accessible for the first time, housing an exhibition about its amazing history and providing a home for our thriving youth group, as well as brand new flexible performance space for its renowned, prolific amateur theatre.  Read about the building and our work so far here   RESTORATION PROJECT

We are now looking to ensure the theatre space can continue to support over 20 diverse and challenging productions a year, providing a professional performance & entertainment space in West Norwood as well as housing an extensive wardrobe hire, props and library of play scripts
