The Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company brings together a whole spectrum of people regardless of ability, or whether they just lack confidence – for whatever reason. They are a Theatre Company ‘Making A Difference To Those Who Need A Difference’.
This multi-award winning, inclusive, intergenerational group, is a Registered Charity (1150188) and a Company Limited by Guarantee (8264851) and carries a similar ethos as the Chicken Shed Theatre in North London – ‘Everyone is Welcome’.
The Artistic Director Les Miles trained there for three years. She, along with her dedicated team of volunteers works what only can be described as ‘Magic’. Members are carefully encouraged to utilise, project and improve the skills they have. They specialise in writing their own scripts and music and they use British Sign Language in all their performances where appropriate.
All abilities and achievements are then showcased on stage (which is something everyone really looks forward to) and more often than not, the general public do not see what difficulties the performers may have.
At LHMTC no auditions are necessary. Everyone has an important part to play and everyone plays an important part. The group formed in 2001 with 15 members and the membership now exceeds 80 and is still rising.
The group is self-funding and is a member of the West Norfolk Time Credits Scheme. Workshops take place all year round, three nights per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) at St. Augustine’s Centre, Columbia Way, from 5.00-8.00pm.
