Archives

Tucked away in a secret location at the Kings Theatre is the Theatre’s Archives.

Filing cabinets are full of over 100 years of our theatre history. Programmes, leaflets, posters, memorabilia and reminisces fill the drawers. Our team of volunteer archivists are always hard at work cataloguing these, creating databases and providing interesting material for display in the theatre’s foyers.

If you are a researcher in need of information please contact tony.young@kingsportsmouth.co.uk

The archives are currently not open to the public, but as part of The Big Project we have aspirations to make them more accessible.
