Welcome to Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society
Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) performed its first pantomime in the Bryce Institute at Burneside in January 1975. Since then, there has been an uninterrupted run of 45 pantomimes!
The Society also produces plays and musical events, ranging from Dracula to Showstoppers to The Ladykillers!
Our last "straight" plays have been really well received with challenging productions of The Accrington Pals and 1984 - check out the past shows pages for pictures and reviews.
Over the years the Society has had a policy of ploughing any profits from productions into providing new facilities, such as lighting and sound equipment.These facilities are not only available to BATS, but to other users of the Bryce Institute in Burneside.
Over the years, BATS has contributed nearly £50,000 to the on-going maintenance of the Bryce.
BATS works closely with the Management Committee of the Bryce Institute to ensure that the Institute, BURNESIDE'S VILLAGE HALL, provides marketable facilities to encourage a wide range of users to use this vital village facility.
