Ted de Poitiers remembers… 📺

Ted de Poitiers is 92 years old but still remembers the joys of visiting Streatham Hill Theatre backstage, as a child of 10. He talks in this video interview (with subtitles) with photographer Stephanie Black, our Memories Project lead. A transcript (PDF) is also available.

Ted was an avid collector of autographs and still has a fascinating collection from as early as 1941 – some of these are shown in the video and others in our photo gallery.
