Description

This silk programme was produced for the opening night of the refurbished and re-named Sarel Hall, formerly the Theatre Royal Guernsey on 15th September 1884. It was opened under the patronage of Major-General H. A. Sarel and the management of Mr. Wybert Rousby, incorporating significant re-modelling of the auditorium and reduced prices for the upper boxes. Major-General H. A. Sarel (1823-1887) became Lieutenant Governor of Guernsey in 1883. The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company performed Iolanthe on the 15th September 1884, and Patience on the 16th September 1884.
