Historic images of Winding Wheel needed for exhibition

Posted on: Friday 24 June 2016

Do you have any historic photographs of the Winding Wheel?

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the birth of the Winding Wheel and to celebrate we are creating a specially commissioned exhibition called The History & Development of the Winding Wheel. The exhibition will take place at the Winding Wheel and it will be open to the general public from Mon 15 – Friday 26th May - entry is free.

Our exhibition is nearly complete, but we need more historic photographs to display at the exhibition. As well as historic images of the Winding Wheel, we are specifically interested in photographs of the interior of the building when it was a cinema - The Picture House or the Odeon. We are also keen to have some images of the Café which was in the Function Room or the Restaurant which was in the Ballroom, and some historic images of people on a night out at the venue.

If you have any photographs, please email them to chesterfield.theatres@chesterfield.gov.uk or bring them into the Chesterfield Theatre Box Office which is located at the Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre, Rykneld Square, Chesterfield, S40 1SB and is open Mon-Sat 9.30-6pm (9.30am-5pm Mon 1 May. We would be able to scan any hard copy of photographs whilst you wait and return them straight to you.

More information about the exhibition and other 30th birthday celebration events, can be seen here.
