An architectural history of the Tyne Theatre's change and evolution between 1867 and 1919.
Over the last 12 months work has started on planning a major restoration of the Tyne Theatre, and in consequence the architectural genealogy of this grade I listed building has been finally unravelled. William Parnell created a theatrical masterpiece having never designed a theatre before - how did he do it?
David Wilmore's company Theatresearch acts as Lead Consultants for many theatre restoration projects.
