Cheltenham playbills

The Wilson holds a collection of over 5000 theatre playbills, programmes and other printed items relating to the theatre and public entertainment in Cheltenham since the late 18th century. A large part of this collection relates to the Theatre Royal, which operated for over half a century from the 1780s, providing a rare insight into theatre-going and the excitement it generated at the time. Also included in the collection is material concerned with Cheltenham’s later theatres and places of entertainment, notably the Everyman Theatre.
