80th Anniversary Heritage Project 05

By Open Air Theatre

HeritageProject

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre is pleased to announce that initial plans for the creation of a digital collection to present material from the theatre's archive have now begun.

Spanning over 80 years, the theatre has a long and fascinating history and the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre Heritage Anniversary Project intends to make this history available for everyone. We will tell the story of the theatre through items such as programmes, posters, photographs and designs, aiming to paint a visual historical picture of the real story behind the Open Air Theatre.

We are very pleased that, with thanks to an anonymous donation, initial plans for the digital archive are well underway.

Please contact Marianne Steele or Katey Warran if you would like to know more about the project or if you would like to make a donation.
