Old Theatre Programmes
theatre programmes; theatre brochures; flyers 



  It's been a long time in the making but it is here at last. Theatre programmes and brochures going back to the late 19th century right up to last year. I have tried to be as honest as I can in the descriptions, but if you click on the title of the show then you will be given a large copy of the image from the front of the programme, etc.. Although, I have to point out that, due to the nature of the purchases, I cannot offer a return option after you have bought the item. I will be MORE than happy to answer any question you may have before purchase and you can do that by clicking this email link.  

The programmes, etc are all listed in alphabetical order and there is a search facility on the site if you are looking for something specific, some of the pages have many entries and you could possibly go as boggled-eyed as I have in setting up the web site. I have also tried to make it simple to find say Brochures by placing an icon next to each entry.

Talking about Brochures. I tried taking photos of them but between retakes and cropping and all that stuff, I decided it would be better to just photocopy them like the programmes. This wasn't without its problems! Half of them were too big for the photocopier and anything that has a light colour on the cover comes out looking a bit yellow round the edges. SO, I have put the actual measurements of the brochure along with the condition and number of pages. I will also tell you if it has a yellowing cover. If there is no remark about the cover then, believe me, the cover is in good condition. However, I know that some of the brochures are pricey so, if you would like me to send an actual photo of a brochure then just get in touch and I will be happy to send you one before you part with your hard-earned cash! And, anyway, I want you to return after your first purchase and to feel confident that the photos and condition of the brochures and programmes live up to your expectations.

  I should also add that if you are looking for a particular person then the listing will be under their first name

Apologies in advance for spelling names, etc wrongly. I have tried as best as I can to proof the site but I gave up in the end otherwise it would never go live!


I'll just add again: I am unable to accept returns once purchased so PLEASE if you have any doubts about a purchase, I will be MORE than happy to give you any further details before you spend your money. Also if you are trying to buy but the page gives you any problems, PLEASE let me know and I can help.

Lastly: If anyone wants to purchase the entire collection - make me a sensible offer!!


NB: I am unable to purchase any new programmes to sell on this site

However, sometimes people kindly donate programmes to me, in that case I give all proceeds of the sale to a charity of their choice. These programme entries are marked letting you know they are charity programmes. Should you wish to donate further to the charity then please let me know and you can donate via Paypal

  Now I have these programmes and brochures out of the way, the next step is:oldtheatrememorabilia including books, photos, marketing gifts, mugs, books, libretti, vocal scores and.... well anything that isn't a poster or programme!
