We are a theatre charity, devoted to commemorating the great stars of

Music Hall, Musical Comedy, Theatre, Variety, Vaudeville and Pantomime.

 

Our work focuses on research as well as caring for, restoring and preserving the final resting places of music hall and theatre artistes' and erecting commemorative blue plaques to acknowledge their contribution to our collective cultural heritage.  

 

Theatre productions, exhibitions, reminiscense projects and the collecting of  music hall/theatre memorabilia also play an important part of our work.

 

Throughout the year, volunteers help restore the memorials of Music Hall and Theatre artistes and bring  them back to their former glory and where a memorial has been removed or for whatever reason has fallen into disrepair, then we set about raising funds to erect a new memorial in which to keep their memory and legacy alive.



 

RESEARCH is constantly in motion to help build up our comprehensive database for students, descendants, theatre historians or anyone interested in the arts.

 

We are always grateful for donations of THEATRE MEMORABILIA AND EPHEMERA to help add to our extensive Music Hall Archive.
