OLD THEATRES magazine—Autumn/Winter 2014 Edition
The Autumn/Winter Edition of Britain’s cherished OLD THEATRES magazine of theatre
nostalgia (No. 19), which will be distributed from November, includes a visit to Buxton’s
beautiful Opera House which has been so beautifully restored it must certainly be the pride
of the Peak District. Frank Matcham designed, its auditorium is one of his finest and we
include some marvellous views of both the interior and exterior together with its history
As a bonus, our Chief Photographer, Ian Grundy also had the pleasure of photographing
the interior of another great Matcham theatre for us, Belfast Grand Opera House.
Theatres of this quality are few and far between and this one is a real beauty.
Our mystery theatre is revealed as Reading Palace where we turn back the clock to
witness its demolition in 1962 when it was dirty, dank, dilapidated and dismal, and due for
speedy demolition to make way for development..
We also report on our success in arranging the twinning of Morecambe Winter Gardens
theatre with the 4th Street Theater at Moberley, Missouri, USA.
Produced voluntarily by retired journalists, authors and historians, together with editorial
help from its readers, this truly unique publication of theatre nostalgia continues to publicise
our halls of entertainment so our theatre stock can be saved for future generations to enjoy.
The magazine is packed with articles, features and memories within its 52 pages—each
edition becoming part of our history and a handy reference source.
