The National Theatre Archive is a treasure trove of material, encompassing all of the creative, technical and administrative records of the National Theatre. The Archive is open to everyone by appointment. The collection covers the movement to found the National Theatre and the period from the start of the company in 1963 right up to the present day.
An online catalogue for the material in the collection is accessible via the Catalogue (this link opens in new window). The Archive provides research space and free screening facilities for individuals as well as groups, including schools and universities, and can accommodate up tp 65 people for screenings.
On the last Friday of every month, the NT Archivist and curator offer a tour of the exhibition in the Lyttelton Lounge followed by a handling session with materials from the Archive. For more information and to book a free place, click here.
