OLD THEATRES magazine—Spring 2015 Edition (No.20)

The Spring 2015 Edition (No.20) oBritains cherished OLD THEATRES magazine of

theatre nostalgia (No. 20), which is being distributed from March 1st, includes an article on

the very successful Grade II listed Nottingham Theatre Royal with interior photographs

dating back to 1984 showing how it used to be.

We also visit Weymouth Pavilion theatre to witness its return after a long and interesting

history. The building could have been demolished, but now audiences are returning to the

venue which under new management is going from strength to strength.

Our award winning Chief Photographer, Ian Grundy, has been out and about to bring

you some magnificent interior photographs of Sunderland Empire which is one of Britains

finest theatres. Its onof the largest venues in the north east and the auditorium is one of

the few remaining in the UK to have four tiers—the Orchestra Stalls, the Dress Circle, the

Upper Gallery and the Gallery. Pictures of theatres from the Scarborough and Bridlington

areas, together with new pictures of Wiltons Music Hall in London are also featured.

There is a special report on Colchester Hippodrome, where Editor Ted Bottle reports on

its ‘lost’ theatre daysThe building is stilin use, having escaped demolition, so itdarkest

days are over. Not so though, for Exeter Theatre Royal which was the scene of one of

Britains greatest theatre tragedies when fire swept through the buildinwith heavy loss of


Editor Ted also reports and includes photographs on New Mills Art Theatre in Derbyshire

where its ‘Friends’ have provided up to date sound and lightinsystems. He comments:

Ththeatre is gem and exceedingly well maintained. It inot ‘listed, but should be”.

In another special feature look at Deteriorating Theatres, thanks to our roving reporters

and photographers.

This Edition which preludes our 21st Edition next Summer (an important milestone for

OLD THEATRES magazine) certainly provides a wonderful read covering Restorations,

Histories, Memories, and Artistes Experiences. The latter includes an interview by our

Chief Reporters, David and Sue Aspinall, with the grand daughter of northern comedian

Albert Modley, a great Ambassador for Variety.

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.
