Friends Association

About the Friends of the Theatre Collection

The Friends Association is a registered charity (reg no. 272392) and actively promotes and supports the Theatre Collection in many valuable ways.

Through special volunteer projects, working with sorting and cataloguing acquisitions, they help enhance the Collection’s accessibility to the public and help strengthen links with other cultural, theatrical and educational organisations.

Working closely with the Theatre Collection staff, the Friends Association also promotes the existence and importance of the Collection; help to organise exhibitions; and raise money to support the Collection’s work.

Recent items which the Friends have generously contributed towards include:

  • Two museum-standard display cases;
  • A digital camera to record large and three-dimensional objects;
  • Training courses for interviewers involved in the recent Oral History Project.

The work and support of the Friends Association makes a lasting contribution.
