This is a fun little document relating to the history of British theatre.

It is a menu card for the Annual dinner of The Gallery First Nighters' Club.

This was held at the Criterion Restaurant Banqueting Suite on November 28th 1956.

The menu is on the left-hand side of the open menu... and the speakers are named on the right-hand side - this includes Dame Sybil Thorndike.

There is a quirky caricature on the front cover - probably relating to an incident in the theatre that year with audience heckling.

Dimensions: 22.5 x 12.5 cm

Probably a wee item for the specialist collector of British theatre memorabilia.

I have another one for the 29th Annual Dinner of 1932 in my Iconic Edinburgh online store.
