I'm looking for 356 Brit theatre programmes from 1989 to present; primarily in London but some in the provinces.


I have added 4 files below listing all 356 programmes I am looking for. They MUST be from the exact theatre and date I saw the play in.  Please feel free to let me know if you have one, a dozen or scores of them to sell.


Thank you.


JT in Canada. Note: I make about 3 trips to England each year (for theatre) based in London: next trip is mid Feb. for 8 days.

Are you looking to buy or to borrow? And for what purpose? I have loads of programmes. I suggest you post in batches and then we can see what you're after.

I'm looking to purchase. I'm trying to collect a programme for all of the nearly 600 plays/muscials I have seen in the UK over the past 23 years and have about 250 to date. My dream is to one day open a Brit theatre gallery in Canada (where I live) showcasing posters, programme and my journal notebooks from each and every one of the 33 trips in the past 23 years. Here is a small batch:

18  American Trade  Hampstead  13-Jun-2011  London - there was no programme as such, the playtext was sold in its place (you can probably get that via Amazon or some other means). I do have a spare copy but I've no idea what the postage cost would be for it.

I might have (using the number system) programmes for 17, 20, 69 and 94 (alongside playtext of 18). I say might as they could be anywhere in the house

Feel free to post the rest of your request list up :)

The NT and RSC generally keep past programmes which you can buy after the production.

eg http://www.rsc.org.uk/shop/item/70076/ for no 52. Again, I don't know about postage to Canada- sorry :)

Thank you. I had been checking the RSC site for 2 months and it was not there until....... now.


Again; thank you.



As to the National theatre I was there over Christmas and they assured me (in person) they do not keep or sell programmes for past productons.

A couple of pounds for each for the older thin ones; up to 3 pounds for the more recent ones. Note that I am looking for about 350 all together.

I am also visiting London again mid Feb. so they could be posted to me there

At present I am not buying play texts .... unless they also include information about the actual play's cast and production at the Brit theatre I saw it in.


As for the other ones below they MUST be a programme from the actual theatre I saw it in and the same year: IE: And then there were none (#20 below): I saw at the Oxford Playhouse in 2008. I would only want the programme from that theatre.


How much do you want for the ones you have?

I am also visiting london again mid Feb. for 8 days and they could be posted to me there.
