We have posted a new audio file to the archive, featuring Ray Riches (https://hblt.co.uk/sound). Ray often gave talks to local groups about the Little Theatre, and these excerpts are from an hour long talk he gave to the Local History Society on 10 November 2005. The five minute extract consists of four short clips relating to the formation and early years of the theatre.

The recording is courtesy of Pennine Horizons Digital Archive, at Pennine Heritage.

The editing is by Vaughan Roberts.
