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.

@ChocolateLoveTO@jrf_uk@jrct_uk@JRRT1904 Thank you. We recognise this too. It has always been clear that the company operated during the period of colonialism, but this can also feel like new info. Catherine Hall's descriptions of 'knowing and not knowing' & 'turning a blind eye' feel helpful in capturing this duality.
