Tuesday 13th April - Theatre Memorabillia

GUEST : Fred Mead is in to talk about the memorabillia exhibition at the Brentwood Theatre

Brentwood Theatre is delighted to be hosting a very exciting display of theatre memorabilia, ranging from Marcel Marceau's pedestal to Bud Flanagan's hat, via 100-year old costumes and lots, lots more which will be raising money for the continued maintenance of Brentwood Theatre.

The exhibition will be launched by Mrs Audrey Longman, in whose honour the studio was named, on 20 April and will be available to view each afternoon and whenever there is a production.

Mark added, 'Fred Mead is kindly making no charge and therefore all donations will go straight to the Theatre : he also has some items which he will be selling / auctioning at the same time which may be of interest. And, of course, if you have not yet seen our fantastic new backstage facilities completed last Easter, including The Audrey Longman Studio, this is your ideal opportunity!'

Weekly News

  • YOUNG people across Brentwood will get more relevant and tailored youth services as part of a £150,000 pilot scheme. For the first time ever, Essex County Council, which normally controls all funding for youth projects across the county, has devolved responsibility for part of a £150,000 slice of its budget to Brentwood Council. The new scheme is called the Brentwood Youth Service Agreement, and could mean freeing up extra cash to be spent on activities for young people. The scheme will be run for six months and then reviewed.
