ADMISSION:  FREE (seats must be pre-booked – RSVP below)

Normansfield – Protecting a Theatrical Past is an HLF project which we received funding for in July 2015 to improve our building’s drainage for the scenery storage area, thus ensuring that our vast collection of Victorian scenery is protected from adverse weather conditions, and then secondly to produce a photographic catalogue of all our pieces of scenery so that they could be displayed on a touch screen for all visitors to the theatre.  Part of the funding included the creation of a virtual theatre, enabling visitors to create their own stage scene using our Victorian scenery.

The project has also involved local visits and tours and finishes with this  joint conference on Saturday, 20th May 2017.   A draft copy of the programme is attached.   Speakers will include Ian Jones Healey, Karen Thompson, David Wilmore, Dr Hilary Vernon Smith, Jane Pritchard, Dr Veronica Isaac, Raymond Walker and Alison Rae.

The conference will focus on the Normansfield collection of Victorian scenery, its conservation,  Victorian Set painting and costumes, the D’Oyle Carte, and the Visit Theatres historic theatre route through Europe.
