Birmingham Sydney Race’s Nottingham Nights
7th February 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Sydney Race, from his early teens, kept an irregular journal, in which he
wrote about his fascination with the amusements Nottingham had to
offer – the annual Goose Fair, where Race first saw moving pictures,
visits from tenting circuses and portable theatres, freak shows which
established themselves briefly in empty shops, and the Theatre Royal,
where he saw Henry Irving and Ellen Terry. This talk explores these
fascinating glimpses into Edwardian entertainment, using Race’s journals
and a large collection of contemporary images.
Speaker: Ann Featherstone
