In line with government instructions the Fisher Theatre is currently closed.
We still have no idea when restrictions on Theatres and Cinemas will be relaxed and what distancing measures will be required of us when we do open to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and you, our audience.
Sadly this uncertainty makes it impossible to advertise any shows at the moment.
Many small and large Theatres are suffering as we still have running costs to pay with no income. If you are able to make a donation to help us come through this crisis please use the 'Donation' link in the sidebar.
Thank you for your support of the Fisher Theatre and your understanding at this difficult time.
David Fisher and his Norfolk and Suffolk Company of Comedians.
Join historian Ivan Bunn in a fascinating talk about the extraordinary life and times of theatrical entrepreneur, Norwich-born David Fisher, within the LAST survivor of his 13 Fisher Theatres
In the early 18th century Norwich born David Fisher established his touring Company of Comedians in Norfolk and Suffolk. During that time he erected 13 theatres, that at Bungay now being the sole survivor. In this fascinating illustrated talk, using much contemporary material, historian Ivan Bunn will explore the life and times of this extraordinary and talented theatrical entrepreneur. Pre and post the talk will give the opportunity to view archaeological finds unearthed during the theatre's renovation in 1996-2006 including a priceless, hand-painted proscenium banner and the atmospheric cellar space complete with a replicate Georgian "audience" in the original pit. Visitors may also find David Fisher himself, taking some light refreshment in the bar...
Sunday 22 September: 18.30-19.30
There will be an opportunity to look at the cellar for half an hour before and after the talk
