The Fisher Theatre at Bungay, Suffolk, opened in February 1828. It was built by David Fisher I. The theatre was one of a dozen serving the circuit of Fisher's company, The Norfolk and Suffolk Company of Comedians.
The theatre was sold by the Fishers in 1844 and was used subsequently as a corn hall, furniture store, steam laundry, cinema, and textile warehouse. After extensive renovations the building re-opened as a theatre and community arts centre in 2006.
The collection consists of 14 items being: leases, releases, conveyances, and documents relating to the Theatre and the site on which it is built, 1790-1886.
The collection is on loan to the Archives. The collection was deposited by John and Judy Hawkins in 1997 however ownership was transferred to the Trustees of the Fisher Theatre, Bungay in 2015.
