Description

'A Christmas Carol' in the Archive

Come along to the Theatre Collection for some festive refreshments, mincepies and a chance to see a selection of archive items relating to Dickens's classic story A Christmas Carol.

Inspired by Bristol Old Vic’s forthcoming adaptation of Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol, Friends' Chairman and volunteer Peter Leppard has been exploring the Theatre Collection for material on past productions by the Bristol Old Vic Company both at the Theatre Royal and the Little Theatre as well as those at the Bath Theatre Royal. For one night only, he will be presenting a collection of programmes, photographs, scripts and books to jog the memory of childhood reading and visits to the theatre celebrating one of the enduring tales without which Christmas just would not be the same.

Peter Leppard became Chair of the Friends of the Theatre Collection earlier this year. After a career in youth work, youth policy and race relations at local, national and international level Peter joined the Open University as an administrator finishing his time a little early as Regional Secretary for the South West Region. Along the way as a mature student he collected a degree in Medieval and Modern History from Birkbeck College, University of London. As an even more mature student in 2016 he completed a Master’s research degree with the University of Bristol on the original proprietors of the theatre in King Street who also helped to found the Bristol Library Society. Peter volunteers a day a week as the honorary librarian of the Theatre Collection.
