The website states…. This site is making available all the playbills in the Local Studies Library collection from a wide range of Leeds Theatres such as The City Varieties, The Grand, The Princess and the Theatre Royal. The site provides a unique insight into theatre life in Leeds between 1781 and the 1990’s. The site also contains some circus bills, such as those from Pablo Fanque’s Circus.
So if you have ancestors who trod the boards and might have appeared in Leeds this site may well be helpful. http://www.leodis.org/playbills/
