fancy a chance to act at the churchill theatre studio?

James Hay, a former member of BLT, has written and is directing a one act play Fire Bird at the Churchill Theatre Studio on Saturday 21st April at 3-00 and 8-00.

aviva community fund – update

As you probably know, BLT was a finalist in the Aviva Community Fund competition. Unfortunately we didn’t win the £25,000 prize, which would have helped enormously towards fixing our leaky roof. But we were awarded a consolation payment of £500 so we didn’t come away empty handed – every little helps as Tesco says (other supermarket brands are available)! We polled very well, but not quite enough to get us over the line ahead of the field, so many thanks […]

Correction – times for our volunteers’ party on 3rd February

In our New Year’s BLTin we said that the party for our hardworking volunteers on Saturday 3rd February would be between 2.00 and 5.00pm. It’s actually going to be from 7.00 to 10.00 – sorry about that and hope our mistake hasn’t caused too much confusion! But, as Hilary Cordery has said, if you have sold a ticket, poured a glass of wine, opened the doors to the auditorium or volunteered in any other way for BLT over the last […]

review of treasure island

By Paul Campion (to see the review of this show by remotegoat click here) “Girls need adventures too, Mrs Hawkins”  Just as Charles Dickens invented the modern idea of Christmas with ‘A Christmas Carol’, with ‘Treasure Island’ Robert Louis Stevenson pretty much invented the modern idea of pirates.  Parrots…wooden legs… tricorn hats… treasure maps marked with an ‘x’… swordfights…grog….they all featured in Stevenson’s original 1883 novel and continue to define all things piratical to this very day. But ‘Treasure Island’ […]
