The Centre for Heritage Imaging and Collection  (CHICC) again worked with Chethams library, digitising a selection from their wonderful Belle Vue archive. Belle Vue was a large attraction and zoo in Manchester between 1836 and 1987. The archive contains thousands of posters, programmes and photographs, as well as the financial and business papers of the owners.

Along with the Belle Vue items, the team also digitised volumes of playbills and posters from the Theatre Royal and surrounding theatres in the Manchester area.
