Digital Archive:Photograph, Aerial view of Chichester Festival Theatre (c.1962)

Showing ramps needed to move scenery in and out of the auditorium

Photograph showing an aerial perspective on the working Festival Theatre from the back and side. The ramp system needed to move sets in and out of the first floor auditorium can be seen as can the temporary huts erected to provide extra storage and wardrobe space. An empty Northgate carpark can also be seen as can St Paul’s Church in the background.
