Collection Description

Collection Title
English Provinces: Exeter (1850-1996)
A collection of 29 programmes and prospectuses from Exeter, from 1850 to 1996. In addition, the collection includes a few press cuttings.

The collection includes a programme from a concert given by the Exeter Oratorio Society, on 16/07/1880. The concert was given in the Royal Subscription Rooms and featured a performance of The Creation (Haydn). The programme includes the words of the performance, as well as a list of Exeter Oratorio Society members.

In addition, there are five prospectuses from the Exeter Festival. There is also a leaflet concerning the celebration of 300 years of Anglo-Dutch friendship in Exeter. There is a programme from a concert given as part of the Exeter Philharmonic Subscription Concerts in 1936, where the venue of the concert is unspecified.

The programmes are arranged by venue, then chronologically. The prospectuses are housed at the end of the sequence, divided into organisation/festival, then arranged by year.
