They will be in the Horseshoe and Pavilion Theatre to speak to people and record their memories of working in the two venues.

Entry to the open day is free of charge and visitors will be able to go backstage at the Opera House including the dressing rooms, tread the boards that so many famous faces have previously walked on, and get up-close to the historic Wurlitzer theatre organ.

The Museum will be located inside the Winter Gardens with proposals being developed using funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
