Welcome to Nailsea Little Theatre
Nailsea Theatre Club was formed in 1963 by a few dedicated enthusiasts. Since then it has had a continuous programme of successful productions and currently presents three plays a year. Some years ago the club became a registered charity and as a consequence was able to obtain a National Lottery grant to extend the premises - an old Methodist Chapel which is used for rehearsals, scenery building, social events and productions. The new extensions were opened by our past president, Tom Williams, in June 1996. Since the start of the 2011 season the premises at Union Street have become known as Nailsea Little Theatre.
Our doors are open
July 1963, a warm sunny Sunday afternoon, the place - Westway, Nailsea, and two young men are talking over their garden walls and taking a rest from cutting the grass. Only a year before, they had moved to the village - one from London and the other from Newcastle. This conversation wasn't much different from many the two had enjoyed over the past 12 months until one magic word was mentioned - THEATRE. This became common ground for both of them and a basis for much eager discussion in the months ahead.
