Book now for ‘The Incident Room’ – opening this Friday!

With public pressure mounting, the investigators resorted to increasingly audacious attempts to catch one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers.

Coming in December and booking now:
1558 (or two minutes to four in the afternoon if you prefer) and Elizabeth I has ascended to the throne just in time for tea.  Lord Edmund Blackadder (the bastard great-great-grandson of the original) attempts to win her favour despite the efforts of his ineffectual acquaintances, notably the idiot Percy, and his mediocre mess of a manservant, Baldrick.
Get your boogie shoes on for:
Sunday 10th December. Tickets just £10!
Southern Aces play good-time, soul and R&B, boogie & blues, with scorching sax solos, slide-guitar, harmonica, keyboards and accordion, a super-tight rhythm section and great vocals.

And we’re bringing the blues back to Bromley…
  Bromley has always been associated with the blues.

In the 1960s, the Bromel Club at the Bromley Court Hotel hosted many American bluesmen, including Sonny Boy Williamson, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Champion Jack Dupree, John Lee Hooker and Bo Diddley, as well as stars such as Jimi Hendrix and Wilson Pickett.    British disciples of these legends also featured – John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Zoot Money, Long John Baldry and the Animals also appeared on multiple occasions. Now, the blues is back for 2024. Mississippi MacDonald and The Bourne Music Club are proud to present a new series of blues shows featuring the cream of British and American musicians – the Bromley Blues Club at Bromley Little Theatre.

Tickets are now available for these shows – with more to be announced soon. Book now!

Big Wolf Band Sunday 14th April 2024   The Big Wolf Band are one of the UK’s best blues rock outfits and continue to generate brilliant reviews and responses from audiences, promoters and music writers. The band have toured extensively across the UK and have supported high profile artists such as Bernie Marsden of Whitesnake, Kirk Fletcher, Elles Bailey, Steve Nimmo, Pat McManus, Chantel McGregor, Erja Lyytinen, Stacey Collins and Climax Blues Band.
The future of our theatre. You could play a crucial role in it
BLT recently announced a major funding project to raise £85,000 from our members and supporters. We also need to raise a further £400,000 from Trusts, Foundations and the National Lottery.  

Unfortunately, the fund-raising team focused on this has unexpectedly lost two of its key members and we urgently need to find people to take their places.   Could you be one of them?  

The work should only involve a few hours a week and could be done remotely to suit your schedule.   There are two main aspects of these roles:

1) Research grant funding organisations to establish whether the theatre meets eligibility requirements  

2) Where there is a potential match, obtain, complete, submit and monitor the application process through to a decision being made.  

We’re looking for good organisers with:-

-excellent written and oral communication skills,
-the ability to quickly establish and manage relationships with the FR team, theatre board and prospective grant funding organisations  
-the ability to enjoy (and contribute to) being part of a team  

BLT is committed to becoming an energy efficient and environmentally responsible theatre.  We recently commissioned an independent Eco Audit from a specialist consultancy and now want to implement their recommendations.   So we are also looking for a Project Manager to help with this.  

Reporting to the Board, you would oversee the effective and timely delivery of actions resulting from the ECO Audit.   The work should only involve a few hours a week and could be done remotely.  

Requirements for the role include:

Good stakeholder management, communication and negotiation skills
Understanding of project management software
Able to monitor project progress and deadlines Keeping the board informed of progress and problems  

If you think you may be able to help with any of these roles, please contact our Chair Bruce Wallace at brucewallace@bromleylittletheatre.org
