Wishing you all a Happy Christmas. Let’s hope we can get together to do more acting in 2021.

It’s Panto season!  Oh Yes It Is!!

Our last play reading of the eventful year 2020 is on Thursday 17th December, so a pantomime has been selected for us to read together!  Yay!!

We hope you will be able to put on a Christmas jumper and hat, a glass of wine in hand and laptop in front of you and Zoom in with us on Thursday.

God bless


Father Christmas visited us in Otford. I hope he has time to fit in a visit to you too.

News from Bromley Theatre Guild

Full-Length Play Festival

The Annual Full-Length Play Festival usually runs from February to June each year. Each play is adjudicated, by a professional adjudicator, with a final adjudication event and awards presented towards the end of June.

Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus, the Festival had to be cancelled this year. But they hope to be back again in 2021.

Also, in 2021, there are plans to hold a ‘Fringe Fest’ to celebrate the dramatic societies in Bromley. This will be held in June and more details will be posted on the BTG website in the coming months. 

So, keep a lookout!


Zoom Play Readings

Some Zoom meetings are not very enjoyable it is true, but I have found our Zoom Play Reading Evenings very worthwhile joining. I think this is because the atmosphere is so like our play readings in The Crown.

After a few minutes of chat to check how everyone is, Andy asks for volunteers to read parts and we launch into the text. Zoom allows us to put on accents show facial expressions since we can see one another. Everyone who wants to gets a chance to read, but even if you don’t want to read, please do join us, it would be good to see you and I am sure you will enjoy watching and listening to the pantomime.

If you have not joined a session before, please email Andy on to receive the meeting details.
