The project to organise a CFT archive uncovered a large number of press cuttings from the Theatre’s early years. As a whole collection they provide a fascinating insight into the Theatre’s history, giving us a contemporary response to key events and reminding us of forgotten stories. The attached databases list over 4500 cuttings covering the 1960s and 1970s. They detail the headlines, subheadings and key names that appear in the articles as well as giving a short précis. If you’d like to access the actual cuttings please email us at [email protected]
