Writers Group

The Blue Elephant runs a monthly Writers Group. We meet at the Blue Elephant at 7pm every second Monday of the month. We meet and read aloud two or three extracts of plays members are working on each month, giving the writer a chance to see their work on its feet and to receive constructive feedback.

Everyone interested in playwriting is welcome to join, whether you aspire to have work you're creating put on professionally or not. We also love to have people come who are interested in acting/critiquing as that's a massive part of the group too.

There's no charge to take part. Our Writers Group is not currently running but if you are interested in joining in future, please email Niamh at

2BScene Performance project

2Bscene is an inclusive theatre group that aims to explore and challenge stigma surrounding mental health through bringing together people with and without lived experience to create pieces of interactive theatre that are taken out to audiences in the wider community in the hope of provoking dialogue and increasing awareness.

We have previously worked with Time to Change, which is England's mental health anti-stigma programme run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness and funded by the Department of Health and Comic Relief. The aim is to bring people who don’t have mental health problems into social contact with those who do. Evidence suggests that this kind of contact is one of the most effective ways of breaking down stigma and discrimination.

Our most recent project, supported by Mrs Smith and Mount, toured thought-provoking performances to SLaM, Goldsmiths, St Mary's Church, Lewisham and Dragon Cafe.
