Carnegie United Kingdom Trust correspondence and reports

Scope and Content

Correspondence and reports relating to the funding of the Sadler’s Wells Theatre by the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust.

Other papers include reports by the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust about Sadler’s Wells Theatre. Two letters relating to funding from the Metropolitan Borough of Finsbury, and a letter relating to a rejected request for funding are also included.

Most of the correspondence is between Capt. R.P.P. Rowe and Lt Col J.M. Mitchell (Secretary, Carnegie United Kingdom Trust).

The correspondence relates both to the initial funding to build the theatre and also support given following severe financial problems of Sadler’s Wells and the Old Vic in soon after the new theatre had opened.
