Madhatters Theatre Club


About us

A small multi-cultural drama group based in the London Borough of Brent. Open to all and we encourage members to take an active part in our productions whether performing, backstage or front of house. We usually mount two productions each year as well as performing at Borough festivals and community events.

Formed in 1948, which will be 70 years in 2018, and started out as part of a youth club. We have never been a particularly large group usually numbering between 10 and 20 members. Our small size makes us a friendly and welcoming group and means that everyone has a go at every aspect of theatre, from acting and directing to make up and set building.

The past few years have seen a change in our fortunes as membership has increased and we have secured better venues for performance. Previously we met at St Mungo’s Centre and performed our plays at Malorees Junior School. We were successful in applying for a Lottery grant to improve our performances and equipment and we also received a Millennium grant to produce a video history. Further Awards of Arts For All grants were received in 2006 and 2009 for our work within the community. We received charitable status on the basis of the strong community content of our work.

For further details please contact us. We always welcome new volunteers. Please contact us by phone or email before you set out so that we know to expect you. We are happy to welcome volunteers from all over the world. Our group recently included speakers of Bulgarian, French, German, Greek, Italian and Polish.
