PROGRAMMES

To see all the programmes I've collected before 2015 please visit my original website at www.kenford.me.uk

Some are from shows I've seen, others I've bought or had passed on to me by others.

2018 ACQUISITIONS

In May this year I added to my collection a large number of programmes donated by David Procter. David was leaving Lancashire to live abroad and found it impractical to take all the programmes he had amassed over many years. They are shown below - with the exception of some that I already posess and  have previously illustrated on my websites.

I also added the following programmes to my collection that now totals 2850:

This programme from 1875 is the oldest in my collection

LONDON HIPPODROME

This 1956 programme  is my 68th from the London Hippodrome

TERRY'S, WYNDHAM'S, ADELPHI AND GARRICK THEATRES

These programmes are for: My Lady Molly - a Sidney Jones musical, 1903; Little Mary - by J M Barrie, 1903; Em'ly - adapted from David Copperfield, 1903 and The Cricket on the Hearth - also from Dickens, 1904.

All four were printed by W T Haycock & Sons of 'Nell Gwyn House' on Dean Street and carry advertisements for De Reszke cigarettes on the cover
