Bringing Theatre to Southwick for 70 years

Saturday mornings June 30th to July 28th - also open until 4 pm on Saturday June 30th

Wick Theatre Company, Southwick, has received Heritage Lottery Funding to mount
an exhibition to celebrate their 70th anniversary of bringing theatre to Southwick.
Amanda Evans, exhibition curator explains: “The exhibition will tell of the Company’s
journey, from the gathering in 1948 of a small group of enthusiastic teenagers, their
mentoring by a local benefactor, through involvement in local drama competitions, to
their presenting seventy seasons of award winning drama. The enthusistic
teenagers included my parents!
The Company first performed in the Barn Theatre, within Southwick’s Community
Centre, in 1951 following its official opening and the journey of the Barn Theatre is
also respected in the exhibition.
