Memory Lanes

Whilst the doors to our building are currently closed, we are working on an exciting project called Memory Lanes.

The Theatre will bring its well-loved gallery out on to the streets of Chipping Norton, creating an exhibition of living memories with the help of its community.

In partnership with Chipping Norton Museum and the popular ‘Chipping Norton Then & Now’ Facebook page, The Theatre is inviting local people to submit photos of Chipping Norton and its community from years gone by.

We are looking for photos that evoke a sense of occasion. Think jubilee street parties, Chippy Mop, a snap of the old recording studio or perhaps even of The Theatre itself! We are keen to see anything that recalls a time when people came together in Chippy, and that one day we will return to.

Entries are open now and can be emailed to [email protected]

Deadline for submissions is: Monday 12th April 2021

The Theatre will choose a selection of the submissions to feature in the Memory Lanes exhibition. These photos will be positioned around the town for the community to enjoy, so The Theatre is only looking for submissions that people are happy to have displayed publicly!

Local folk will have the opportunity to explore the Memory Lanes routes from Monday 31st May – Sunday 27th June. The routes will be spaced to comply with current government guidelines around Covid safety and will avoid all indoor areas. All routes will be fully accessible and, what’s more, it’s completely free!
