Welcome to the East London Theatre Archive (ELTA), a database of East London theatre ephemera provided by the V & A Theatre Collections, East London theatres and UEL archives.

ELTA's collection ranges from 1827 to the present day, including playbills and programmes to press cuttings and photographs. It also has themed essays to contextualise the material and maps showing theatre locations.

Between 2009 and 2011 ELTA is also taking part in the JISC funded CEDAR Project, an attempt to Cluster and Enhance Digital Archives for Research, so you may notice some changes or additional material. Please visit our blog to find out more
