A performance celebrating 40 years of the Angles Theatre in Wisbech showcased just a few of the hundreds of shows the venue has produced since 1978.
Presented by the in-house company RATz, Celebrating 40 Years brought together former cast members and theatre lovers on Thursday November 15.
A spokesman for the theatre said: “Back in 1978, a group of performers were looking for a space to rehearse their upcoming production to be held at the Isle College.
“They stumbled upon a strange building between the Wisbech Christian Spiritualist Church and the local boxing club.
“At the time, little did they know they had stumbled upon one of the oldest original theatres in the UK.
