Blue Elephant Theatre Update

We are delighted to be getting back to a more 'normal' way of working. Our youth theatres are back holding in person sessions and we are hosting rehearsals and other creative activities. We will hold performances again once ventilation works are carried out in our space.

We're very grateful to have had such interest in the two vacancies we advertised recently. All applicants have now been emailed about the outcome of their application. We are aware, however, that some of our emails aren't received or are sent to spam by email providers like hotmail so you are welcome to call us on 02077010100 if you have not received an email.

Our Writers Group is now on a short break, and will next meet on Tuesday 28th September. You can find out more here.

Our Artist Network has launched, a new resource for opportunities for emerging artists. More information here.

This Black History Month, Blue Elephant is running workshops for children and young people to celebrate the diverse cultures that come together to make Black British culture.

The workshops will explore the history of areas that have become celebrated and well-known due to diverse Black cultures forming communities there. With many of these places going through changes, especially in London, it is important for these histories to be remembered and shared. Our workshops will explore the journeys local places took to become cultural hubs through drama and writing activities, ultimately encouraging young people to write their own pieces inspired by the workshop.

The workshops are free but spaces are limited so please book in advance. They are most suitable for ages 8 - 12. These events are supported by Southwark Council’s Black History Month Fund

Details:
Wednesday 27th - 10.30am - 12pm
Thursday 28th October - 2.30pm - 4pm

Join Blue Elephant as we come together to celebrate Black History Month 2021. This month we have been celebrating the diverse cultures that come together to make Black British culture, by thinking about the history of places in the UK that have become celebrated and well-known due to diverse Black cultures.

Our celebratory event features a new performance, created in response to our workshops throughout the month, as well as screenings of some of the short monologues created during Black History Month 2020, inspired by powerful figures like Serena Williams and Madam CJ Walker. Join us at 3pm for an especially family-friendly event or at 7.30pm.

We also want to hear from you and there will be an open mic session as part of each event, giving you the opportunity to share anything important to you about this wonderful month. Whether it be poems, songs or spoken word, we want to see it all!

The events are free but spaces are limited so please book in advance. These events are supported by Southwark Council’s Black History Month Fund.
