About BLT

We are a vibrant amateur theatre company run by members we put on a programme of seven plays each year, running from Saturday to Saturday generally and we put on extra nights for charities and parties.


How it began

Back in 1931 a group of thespians, members of the Bolton Dramatic Society, decided to set up Bolton Little Theatre. They were determined to present the best of contemporary and classic drama for which they felt they needed a theatre under their own control, as a precedent for this was being set all over the country.

Today the theatre, based on Hannover Street in the centre of Bolton, continues to engage with audiences of all ages. Offering seven plays a season, from classics to comedy, this award winning amateur theatre can certainly count itself on a par with many of the professional theatres.
