Matt Ran the London Marathon!

Our Trustee Matt ran the London Marathon on April 23rd in just 4 hours and six minutes! We're very proud of him - especially as battled a dodgy achilles tendon and was left with a plate in his shoulder after a bike accident less than a year ago. We're also very grateful as he's raising money to keep the Blue Elephant open and going strong as we struggle to fundraise for the coming year.

Young People's Theatre

Our exciting Young People’s Theatre, supported by Children In Need, offers workshops on Saturdays to local young people. The Young People’s Theatre has been running for the past 9 years and is still going strong! Workshops are free for Southwark residents and are available for young people aged 7 to 18.

  • Participants work towards an exciting performance at the end of each term onstage at the Blue Elephant Theatre to an invited audience of parents and carers.
  • Participants get to be part of a company devising their own work as well as performing from scripts. Participants also work on other art forms such as music, dance, puppetry and mask!.
  • The groups have the opportunity to perform at lots of different venues including, Arts Depot, The Globe and the Unicorn Theatre.
  • There are regular trips to other theatres including West End shows.
  • We have over 100 participants attending our Young People’s Theatre on a weekly basis. Our Young People's Theatre aims to provide drama based workshops to young people who would not normally be able to access such services for social, economic, or other reasons.
