Methwold Theatre Club (MTC) was initially the brainchild of Sheila and Burtie Welland. They had been involved separately and together in theatre for many years. Having moved to Methwold after Burtie’s retirement from the Metropolitan Police in 2008, they became involved in professional touring theatre. However their first love was always local community theatre and early in 2011 they set about canvassing support, and organising, a local group for Methwold.
Although a long gap there was a sucessful theatre group in Methwold back in the 1950’s. Here we see a number of archive pictures held by Methwold History Group. We like to think of the MTC as reinstating this older entusiastic bunch of locals.
