London, Trafalgar Theatre
Theatres Trust would like to invite you to a panel discussion to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the publication of Curtains!!! or A New Life For Old Theatres.
Published in 1982, Curtains!!! or A New Life For Old Theatres was a gazetteer of all the surviving pre-1914 theatres and music halls of Great Britain. It described, graded and illustrated all these often fantastic temples of entertainment whether in theatrical use or not, whether complete or fragmentary. This landmark publication was instrumental to so much of Theatres Trust’s early work and continues to be today.
Join Theatres Trust at this fascinating panel discussion with chair, Peter Longman, and panellists John Earl, Clare Ferraby, Iain Mackintosh, Mike Sell, Nick Thompson and Dave Wilmore who were part of the team that created this significant publication.
