Nottingham Playhouse, 1967
Nottingham Playhouse, 1967
The Playhouse was designed by Peter Moro and opened in 1963. Previously the company had used a former cinema (still there LinkExternal link ) on the corner of Goldsmith Street. If, like me, you were an A-level English student in the mid sixties, the Playhouse was the place to be: for three-and-six (17.5p), student members could see John Neville as Richard II, Judi Dench as St Joan and playing opposite Edward Woodward in "Private Lives", and a whole host of other wonderful things - one heck of an education, subsidised by an enlightened city council. This photo is taken across Wellington Circus and also shows what might have been Nottingham's first pavement cafe. A VW Beetle, a Ford Cortina and a Mini complete a real sixties scene.
