It was October 1966 when Camberley Civic Hall first opened it’s doors – 50 years ago this month.
As you know we have been celebrating all year, with special birthday messages recorded for us by a host of wonderful artists who have performed at the theatre this year – Rick Wakeman, Ian Waite & Natalie Lowe, Fairport Convention, Chris Ramsey and Lau are among the acts who have filmed 50th anniversary messages for us.
We found a wonderful treasure trove of vintage posters in the Surrey Heath Museum recently – some have been framed and are now on display in the bar and function room at the theatre. Here is a selection – does anyone remember attending any of these shows? Let us know, we’d love to hear from you! Funnily enough Ralph McTell is also celebrating his golden anniversary this year and performing at the theatre on November 11th – we found a poster from his concert here in 1979! Happy 50th Ralph, Happy 50th Camberley Theatre!
