History of the Theatre

The Market Theatre

It was between 1961 (closure of the old Kemble Theatre in Broad Street, Hereford) and the opening of the Nell Gwynn Theatre in 1979 (subsequently rebuilt as the Courtyard).

This info does appear on the same web page.

FYI - the other theatres in Hfds, ie. Ross (Phoenix) and Bromyard (Conquest) were built since 1979. AFAWAA, there might have been a dramatic society in Bromyard between 1961 and 1979, but it only performed in halls, not a dedicated theatre building.

An Interesting History of the Theatre

When was Ledbury's Market Theatre the only theatre in the whole of Herefordshire?

An interesting read and some great old photographs.
