Birchmeadow Centre

Located in Broseley, near Ironbridge, Telford, Shropshire. The Birch Meadow Baptist Chapel was built in 1803. It ceased religious use in 1927.

It was converted into the Elite Cinema. The cinema never made it into listing in the Kinematograph Year Books, so further details and closing dates are unknown. It later became a nightclub.

Since at least 2015 the building is in use as the Birchmeadow Centre presenting live theatre, films and live music.

According to the website of the venue the venue stationed the local ARP and Home Guard units during WW2. It became the Bladen Club in the mid 1960’s before being purchased by the Town Council becoming the community centre that it is today. Going full-circle, the centre now offers live theatre, music and cinema shows. Although owned by the Town Council, the venue is operated by a committee of volunteers.
