The Stevenage Lytton Players have just marked their 60th anniversary and now have even more to celebrate after recently receiving planning permission for a new purpose-built 150-seat theatre at their site in Vardon Road.

With more than 160 members, the group has four sections: youth, musical, drama and music hall, as well as a strong technical crew and its own properties store and wardrobe.

Rehearsals for all shows take place at the current Lytton Theatre, which boasts a bar and a green room, as well as a small auditorium which can seat around 80.

Rehearsals are also about to get underway for the group's ever-popular music hall, which runs over two weekends in January.
