Twelfth Night at the Bridge House Theatre – A review

Watching a Shakespeare play can feel difficult. The language is from 400 years ago and English has moved on apace. In the wrong hands it can be an intimidating and confusing experience. So it was with slight trepidation that I accepted my neighbour Guy’s invitation to watch his production of Will Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at…

Penge pops up on the small screen

Rather surprisingly perhaps for a little place in deepest South London, Penge has pushed itself to the front of the queue for filming TV shows in recent months.  So while we don’t expect Elstree Studio to close any day soon or the BBC to relocate their offices to Anerley, it has been fun hosting scenes for two programmes,…

A group of Penge based actors, they decided to…

Every year, on the Saturday over Easter weekend, the PTB, with the assistance of the Penge Traders Association, lays on an eggstravaganza.  The event starts at 3.30 and involves children…

⚜️Help save your local Beavers, Cubs and Scouts! ⚜️

Your local Scout Group, 1st Penge and Beckenham North, located at Penge Congregational Church (by Sainsbury’s) is in urgent need of new leaders. They must have at least two adults at each section meeting and with only three current volunteer leaders in place, and none at Beavers, they are faced with closing the Beaver colony, potentially closing…

A visual homage to Penge

One of our Facebook group members, Tamara Nachname, recently left SE20 for the land of chocolate, cuckoo clocks, banks and mountains.  Thankfully, before she left she decided to capture some of Penge’s delights on film. Accompanied by a pleasant soundtrack, Tamara, has gathered some lovely footage of the local parks, buildings, monuments, art, wildlife and,…
