The story of Hebden Bridge Little Theatre, from its origins in the Literary and Scientific Society, in 1924, to the present day. During its hundred years the theatre has performed plays almost without interruption – a total of nearly 400 full-length plays, to over half a million people. The talk will highlight the people and events that have helped to make the theatre an enduring and endearing feature of Hebden Bridge life.
Vaughan Leslie has been a member of the Little Theatre since 1987 as a frequent actor, director, and in numerous other capacities. Over the last seven years he has put together a comprehensive digital archive on the website, which includes a timeline of all full-length productions during the last century, with links to images for all but four of them.
