Tea Break Theatre

Tea Break Theatre* is a social, regular theatre group for people aged 55 and older.  It’s free to take part.
You’re welcome to join whichever group best fits your circumstances.

It embodies Bubble Theatre’s core values of creativity, connection and community.  Groups meet either in the lounges or gardens of sheltered housing or in community venues, meeting in different places on different days.

We will have a short break over Easter, resuming w/c 15th April.

Making theatre together...

…leading to improved wellbeing.

The programme has been running since 2012 and has also been know as ‘Creative Homes’.

We would like to thank The Mercer’s Company, The Draper’s Charitable Trust, Team London Bridge, The Haberdasher’s Society and The Henry Smith Charity for their generous support of the project.

The narrowboat

London Bubble’s Creative Elders Programme brings people together to connect and create theatre. During the Covid-19 pandemic, some of our groups have met using Zoom.

Once a week we’ve met and imagined, through games, storytelling and improvisation, what it might be like to live on a narrowboat.

These Hands

In the summer of 2014 we asked our Creative Homes groups at Frank Whymark House and Ronald Buckingham Court to remember all the things they had done with their hands.

Supported by Bubble’s specialist artists they wrote a song, gathered from those memories, which they recorded in a sound studio in August.
