East London Theatre Archive

The East London Theatre Archive (ELTA) website provides a digital archive that features material from V&A Theatre Collections, Hackney Empire, Half Moon Young People's Theatre, Hoxton Hall, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Theatre Venture, and Wilton's Music Hall.
The archive can be searched, or browsed by theatre or collection. A huge variety of items are shown, including: architectural drawings; posters; press releases; programmes; photographs; flyers; annual reports; contracts; and educational packs. Although a small handful of 19th century playbills relating to Hoxton Hall is included, the majority of material ranges from the 1970s to 2008.
