Wivelsfield Little Theatre has been a drama and social club since 1964 when the stage was set in the Reading Room in Green Road. The front row was so near to the stage that members of the audience rested their feet on it, tempting the cast to say “excuse me madam, are you part of the set?”. The electrical supply was on a coin meter, there was more than one occasion when the stage manager forgot to feed it in the interval resulting in a total blackout in Act 2!
Utilising our knowledge, love and enjoyment of pre-school aged children, we will share with parents and carers in setting the foundations for early years development and education; we will captivate each child in a world of creativity and play where imaginations can lead us to places new; we will channel a child’s eagerness and interest in life and inspire them for a future love of learning; we will keep each child as safe and secure as we would our own. Each day we will have fun!
Wivelsfield Historical Society was formed in 1993 with the aim of fostering interest in local history by talks, visits, walks and research. Most meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month, at 8 p.m. in Wivelsfield Village Hall, together with some weekend outings in the summer.
