Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

These 3 programmes of Shakesperean productions, staged in the 1940's and 1950's, belong to the Alun Owen Papers.

Before embarking on a successful career as a playwright, Alun Owen travelled the country as an actor. His name appears on the list of characters for these plays, but he is best known for writing the screenplay for the Beatles film "A Hard Day's Night" in the 1960's.

The Archives and Special Collections currently has an exhibition of manuscripts and rare books on a Shakesperean theme, to mark the visit of the Globe Theatre to Pontio.
