|Description||Album containing programmes for productions of dramatic and musical entertainments which were performed principally at West End London theatres, 1909-1915. There are two programmes for productions at the New Theatre, Oxford and a small number of programmes for entertainments performed at both public and private venues in Kent, some of which contain references to member of the Colyer-Fergusson family. For example, a programme for an evening concert of a branch of the Primrose League at Gravesend Public Hall names T. C. Colyer-Fergusson as the Ruling Councillor; and M. Colyer-Fergusson is named as a player at a performance at Wrotham Rectory in August 1911.|
The majority of the programmes include cast lists and some include colour illustrations. Many of the programmes have also been annotated by Sir Thomas Colyer-Fergusson to include the date of his attendance and the initials of others accompanying him.
This album includes a number of loose newspaper cuttings of obituaries of a number of actors and actresses dating to the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s
