The format will be broadly the same as usual and we have invited BATS members to come and join us, so expect a full house. Each team is limited to 4 people which may be formed in advance or made up on the night.

Refreshments are available and the winning team will receive prizes to match their achievement, so we're told. Quizmaster general Eric Dawson is also busy polishing the winners trophy in readiness.

Doors and bar will be open from 7pm. Quiz starts 7.30pm.

Admission only £2 per player.

Quizmaster general Eric Dawson advises that places are filling up so if you want to pit your wits he needs to have confirmation of your participation by 7 October. Email Eric,




Bolton Little Theatre Needs YOU!

Posted by Steve on September 26, 2014

we-need-you.jpgSign up today to serve your theatre

BLT needs your help urgently! For many years we have relied on a loyal army of volunteers to serve tea and coffee to our audience members but we now require extra helpers to man the front line to make and serve hot beverages. It's just for one performance of each show. Full training in the art of using the coffee maker (dead easy!!) will be given.

If you have the skills to be a BLT tea and coffee facilitator, please contact platoon leader June Grice, or 01204 495622.

Come and do your bit. Join now!

Sing-a-Long Sound Of Music Fri 3 October, 2014

Posted by Steve on September 16, 2014

All proceeds go to the Bolton Little Theatre Next Generation Building Appeal

Sing a-long Sound of Music is your chance to have the best fun you`ll ever have in your whole life! Seriously.

You'll have an opportunity to climb every mountain with several other assorted Nuns, Von Trapp family members and Julie Andrews look-a-likes. Costumes are not compulsory but highly desirable as there are prizes up for grabs. You can be as inventive as you like. It’s all part of the fun. And remember, you can never have too many wimples.

The hills will be alive as the comperes start proceedings by warming up your voices before judging the fancy dress competition. You are then taken through the contents of your special Sound of Music “goody bag” given out to all audience members. Please note: Edelweiss not included. Finally, you will be offered suggestions on the most appropriate points in the film to heckle the on screen action such as booing the Countess or cheering the Von Trapp family when they escape.

When the film starts, the audience takes over and just about anything can happen as you sing and shout your hearts out to this much loved classic film.

So, don't be one of the lonely goatheard. No, so long, farewell. Make this show one of your favourite things - ever!

The fun begins at BLT 7.30pm.

A message from Elizabeth Tatman, BLT chair "We are very close to raising the £85,000 necessary to secure our Hanover Street home of over 80 years for future generations. With other planned events in the autumn the theatre is on course to reach its appeal fund target before the end of the year. We have had a fantastic response to our appeal and your support is appreciated by all. Thank you."
