Administrative / Biographical History

The Arts Theatre Group was linked to the University of Glasgow. It was founded at least by 1965 . It performed at the University Arts Theatre. The Group was formed mainly from Glasgow University students, with two-thirds being students and the rest associate and honorary members. It was a post-graduate theatre company but open to others from outside the organisation. The Group ceased after 1976.
