Open Meetings: Thursday 9th and Thursday 16th August at 6.00pm in the Bar / Studio. As this is the holiday season, two meeting dates are offered to enable more people to attend.

The Feasibility Planning stage of our building project is now underway. We want to ensure that the most appropriate use is made of the space offered for the benefit of LDS members, staff, audiences and all users of the Little Theatre. You are therefore invited to a meeting to learn more about the proposed buildings and progress of the project so far.

Michael Cooper, our architect from Darnton B3, will explain the details of the current plans. Please take this opportunity to join in the discussion. Your input is very important to make sure we get the details correct.

When completed, the detailed plans will be submitted to Leicester City Council to obtain planning permission. This is one of the conditions from the City Mayor for the transfer of the site to LDS.

Actress needed for A Month of Sundays (performing Oct 22-27th).

Do you have a first aid certificate and enjoy seeing live theatre? Then you’re in luck…

You may not realise it but we provide our own first aid cover for every performance at The Little Theatre – that’s LDS plays, Visiting Companies, Specials, Studio productions – getting close to 200 individual performances that need first aid cover.

We’re lucky to have a loyal and dedicated team of trained first aiders who cover everything for us but it would be great to have a few more people to call on!

For Main House shows we provide the first aider with a free seat for themselves and a guest and one free seat for Studio shows. In return all you need to do is provide first aid if it’s required on the night.

Are you interested in helping out? If you don’t already have a certificate then we will arrange for you to undertake first aid training with St. John Ambulance. If you already have a certificate, that’s great – all you need to do is give me a call or email me and I’ll let you know what to do next.

Perhaps you have a friend or family member who can help? Just pass on my details and ask them to get in touch.
