A special heritage event celebrating some of the unique behind-the-scenes stories of the Theatre Royal from performers, audience members, technicians and others, many of whom have contributed to our growing archive, particularly through our Oral History programme. At this unique panel discussion, backstage secrets will certainly be shared and lost memories unearthed.
This talk is part of an ongoing series of public events that forms part of Our Theatre Royal Nottingham: Its Stories, People & Heritage, a two year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, that will explore many aspects of our past.
The project, run in partnership with the University of Nottingham, now enables us to do further research into past shows, work with other theatre archives, conduct oral history interviews with performers, staff and audiences; begin work on itemising and cataloguing our own archive and host free talks and heritage days. All of this will culminate in a brand new digital archive for the venue, created by Horizon Digital Economy Research based at the University.
Immediately following this event we will be hosting a memory afternoon where you will be able to see items from the Theatre Royal’s archive, as well as an opportunity to share your memories and donate items as part of our ongoing Our Theatre Royal heritage work.
This FREE event will take place on the Theatre Royal Dress Circle foyer at 1pm. Doors and bar will be open from 12.15pm.
If you have queries regarding this talk or about our heritage work in general then please email David Longford, or call 0115 9895531
