Postcard Exterior CFT - Photographer unknown - Date unknown - Box 71 CFT WSRO - H9x W14cmI came to this theatre for the first time in 1964 when I was 20. I quite fell in love with it and the Chichester area and have visited many times for all types of productions. Certainly my favourite theatre outside London.

Memory: Lovesong (2011)

My favourite memory of CFT would be seeing Frantic Assembly’s ‘Lovesong’ the first play to show me how effectively theatre could influence people’s emotions.

Other comments: Chichester Festival Theatre was the first theatre I had any exposure to. Living only a few miles away, in Southbourne, it has been a great boon growing up being interested in theatre.
