As I have mentioned here before, this year is the centenary of the venerable Palace Theatre in Southend.
I have always been fascinated by theatres and theatre actors and am thinking about writing a novel set in a theatre in the Victorian or Edwardian era. But that's another story!
Last Sunday, it was the theatre open day, and the doors were thrown open to the public who were invited to wander around the building and discover what lies within the walls of the theatre.
We were extremely pleased to see that so many people had turned up for the occasion.
As keen theatre goers, it was lovely to be able to explore "the other side"...
Here are a few pictures.
There is going to be a lovely book published about the history of the Palace Theatre, "Tales From the Palace Theatre, 1912-2012" - published 1st November: it has been written by Charles Sharman-Cox and Rachel Lichtenstein and designed by graphic artist Ciaran O'Sea. We cannot wait to get our hands on it!

I think therefore I write.
