Theatre Royal's door opens for Heritage Days 2010
As I reported on Hyde Daily Photo, today and tomorrow the door is open at Hyde Theatre as part of the Heritage Open Day scheme.
Standing outside is projectionist Arthur Wilde.
Only the ground floor auditorium was open for view this year. Here members of the Theatre Royal Onward Trust pose with Jean Brazil, the Mayor of Tameside and local MP Jonathan Reynolds for an offical photograph.
For the full history of the theatre and the fight to save it, visit the Theatre Royal Onward Trust website.
My photographs of the inside from the 2006-2008 open days can be seen at http://www.geraldengland.co.uk/gx/royal.htm.
