The Joseph Rowntree Theatre opens

The Joseph Rowntree Theatre opens in November. At first it is known as the Joseph Rowntree Hall, but this soon changes.

Peter Rowntree becomes one of the Trustees of the firm responsible for the Theatre’s construction and spends much time and care in making it one of the most up-to-date small theatres in the country. It remains a valuable part of York’s cultural life to this day.
