Scope and content
The Fisher Theatre at Bungay, Suffolk, opened in February 1828. It was built by David Fisher I. The theatre was one of a dozen serving the circuit of Fisher's company, The Norfolk and Suffolk Company of Comedians.

The theatre was sold by the Fishers in 1844 and was used subsequently as a corn hall, furniture store, steam laundry, cinema and warehouse. After exensive renovations the building re-opened as a theatre and community arts centre in 2006.

The collection consists of 14 items being: leases, releases, conveyances, and documents relating to the Theatre and the site on which it is built, 1790-1886.

The collection is on loan to UEA Archives. Originally deposited by John and Judy Hawkins in 1997; ownership was transferred to the Trustees of the Fisher Theatre in May 2015. The location of the collection in the Archives remains unchanged.
