Bob Harris & Danny Baker, two of the nation’s best broadcasters, have unparalleled experience of witnessing the great names of modern music up close. They have been back stage, front stage, at home and on the road with virtually every legend in the business. Fortunately they both have great memories (in both senses of that phrase). Make no mistake - rock and soul music really did have a golden age and here's two storytellers who were there all along the way. It's a really funny story (in both senses of that phrase too). Bob & Dan. They got beans. And they're gonna spill 'em.
There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
