We were delighted to host the rehearsals for the award winning play, The Two Worlds of Charlie F., written by Owen Sheers and directed by Stephen Rayne.
The play toured the UK, and was featured in BBC’s Imagine, including extensive footage of rehearsals taking place at the centre.
The play is based upon the experiences of wounded and injured service personnel who also make up the majority of the cast.
Brixton Community Base, together with Sixteenfeet Productions, are returning to Brockwell Park this summer with a site-specific production of Wind in the Willows in the walled garden.
Subsidised tickets and reductions for playschemes are available due to funding from Lambeth Holiday Activity Provision. There is an allocation of free tickets for children based in Coldharbour Ward who meet the funding criteria thanks to the generosity of the Coldharbour Community First Panel.
Workshops will follow Tuesday and Wednesday performances.
Audiences are limited to 70 per performance, so booking is recommended.

Bling Ya Bike is a project for talented young people. The project gives them the chance decorate and customise their bikes, skateboards, helmets, and saddlebags, imparting respect, creativity and responsibility.
The project aims to encourage young people to start a local micro enterprise or small business, imparting self-confidence, ambition and entrepeneurship.
Bling Ya Bike establishes a community through partner organisations and schools which perpetuate artistic endeavour, and provide positive out-of-school activities. The young people learn the art of bicycle maintenance, how to use tools, and through this, respect for property, community safety, responsibility, and recycling.
All students who complete the project receive a certificate of attendance, and the project is supported by the Metropolitan Police in Brixton.
