United Kingdom Archives and Repositories

In order to simplify the organisation of the material that resides in the United Kingdom, we have used the geographic location of repositories as markers. Alongside each entry you will find a brief description of the subject matter covered by the materials that are listed

Clearly, much of the material that relates to the York or Chester Mystery Cycles, for example, will be found in repositories located in these towns. However, this is far from exclusively the case. Several repositories and archives contain important material covering many different plays and performances. The University of Bristol Theatre Collection or the V&A Theatre and Performance Collections are cases in point.

Wherever possible the information is available as both a downloadable pdf file and a link to a saved search.
