This involved creating 37 new pages of information and Adding 165 new images, and the re-linking of the whole site. I do hope you find it interesting and please let me know if you spot any errors as this was such a vast undertaking that some mistakes are bound to have crept in.

In 1908 a serious fire threatened to destroy the present Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, which this year is celebrating its bicentenary. However, due to the actions of the fire services at the time, and the lowering of the safety curtain, only the stage house and some backstage areas were destroyed, leaving the auditorium and front of house intact for us to enjoy today. You can read a full report of this fire, with many recently discovered photographs of the damage here.
