The Tiny World of Toy Theatres

An exciting new permanent display will open on 6th August 2022 at Pickford’s House Museum in Derby (41 Friar Gate, Derby DE1 1DA). The museum has free entry and is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 1000-1700.

The Frank Bradley Collection of Model Theatres, which has occupied just one small room, is the basis of the display which now expands to fill three rooms on most of the top floor.

The Display shows links to the real theatre including the Derby Theatre and its premiere of “Dracula”!

Visitors can try out a wind machine and a thunder run and have a go at creating their own toy theatre characters and scenes and displaying them in a theatre that we have made for this activity.
