A Model of the Theatre Royal

One of the exhibits at Gee Cross Fete was a model of the Theatre Royal made by Alan Tolfrey a modelmaker from Mossley.

  1. Looks like a place with lots of history...

  2. Amazing detail in this wonderful model!

  3. What a wonderful model he has created. In Paris I saw a model of Saint Chapelle which was amazing in its detail. This takes amazing patience and talent.


  4. Hopefully someone with imagination and money will rescue this fine old theatre. We as a country have lost so many fine theatres and cinemas over the last few decades. I think I read somewhere that here in Leeds at the time of the Great War there were around 112 cinemas around the city, they have mostly gone. Good to see there is a campaign to save the Theatre Royal.
