A new website has been established to promote the preservation of the theatre technology. It has the following explanation:
“Welcome to the Backstage Heritage Collection!
This website represents a group of passionate theatre technical folk who have realised that much of their heritage is being discarded and replaced with new technologies.
We’ve started gathering together other interested parties, and are now cataloguing and logging which equipment is still in existence, with a view to finding ways to display it and enable folk to visit it and reflect on where current technologies first emerged, and how they have evolved (or been reduced) over time.
We’d love you to help us on our endeavours.”
