A Message from BCP’s Chairman

A Message from BCP’s Chairman regarding 2019/2020 Season

30 March 2020

Due to the Covid-19 virus, BCP have had no option but to cancel the rest of our Season – particularly disappointing as this was our 75th Anniversary. 

This Season has already been challenging for BCP with the re-schedule of The Thrill of Love because of the floods at The Mill in November.  We do hope you were able to see Nell Gwynn

BCP’s Management Team have taken the decision to re-schedule The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband to February 10 – 13 2021 and our 75th Anniversary Festival to 14 – 17 July 2021.  The fourth production in the Season will be decided by the team in April this year and will be one of the plays from our Shortlist – details of which can be found here on the BCP website.

We hope you are all staying safe and well, and look forward to normal theatrical service being resumed as soon as possible!

BCP Update (for Members) 5 April 2020

Hello everyone

I do hope that you are all staying home and following instructions?  For most of us, staying at home is extremely hard!  We are so used to meeting up with each other on a regular basis that the present arrangements feel strange and I will admit  to beginning to feel a little stir crazy.

However, these strange times will not last forever and so our BCP thoughts begin to turn to when we can at last meet up again.  It is clear that this is not likely to be any time soon.  Our AGM in May will not happen.  Consequently, we will be unable to vote for new members of the Executive committee, nor to vote for my successor.

Because of this, the Executive committee and myself have decided to leave the current arrangements in place until September.  Therefore I will remain as Chairman, Chrissie Garrett remains as Vice Chair and all current Executive members remain in place.  

The AGM will be rescheduled to September, date to be confirmed.  These arrangements will be reviewed during August and we will confirm the date of the AGM then.

Please don’t hesitate to keep in contact with me and the committee by emailing or on facebook. Although we are not meeting up, we are still here, and getting bored! It would be lovely to hear from you!

Take care and let’s look forward to September!
