This is the first scrapbook in a series collected by Chichester Festival Theatre’s founder, Leslie Evershed-Martin. He started collecting ephemera in the run up to the Theatre’s opening and continued until his death in 1991. This particular scrapbook is one of two which provide a personal insight into the opening of the Theatre in 1962. They are presented as seen in their physical form.
Highlights include a personal telegram from Vivien Leigh and the Queen.
