A Taste of the Theatre Archives

Tickets £10 inc refreshments
Reading Room, University of Bristol Theatre Collection, 21 Park Row, Bristol BS1 5LT
A Taste of the Theatre Archives is a chance to view some food related archives in the Theatre Collection chosen by Rosemary Silvester and Helen Hewitt for an earlier Bristol Food Connections event, and enjoy some delicious refreshments with the Friends - guests welcome.

The Theatre Collection contains one of the world's largest archives of British theatre history and among the holdings stored there are items related to food: from celebrity signed menus to quirky designs by Oliver Messel for the book Delightful Food, and from 1950s chocolate wrappers found under the floorboards of the Bristol Old Vic to a piece of toast used as advertising!

You'll be able to have an informal look at these items and more, as well as chat to Rosemary and Helen.
