Digital Archive:Postcard, cement bags (c.1961)

Used to encourage people to donate to the building project

As part of early fundraising initiatives, people were encouraged to buy a bag of cement to help build Chichester Festival Theatre, concrete being a key material used in the original building. There was a display in the Chichester Festival Theatre shop at the Market Cross in the centre of Chichester. When someone brought a bag of cement they were given a card like this one to pass to a friend.
