Level of description: Collection
Extent: 0.30 linear metres
Name of creator(s): Greater London Council (Staff) Dramatic Club
The Greater London Council Staff Dramatic Club began in 1903 as the School Board for London Staff Dramatic Club. From the start the club was administered by a small committee elected at an annual general meeting. The London School Board, established in 1870, was abolished under the 1902 and 1903 Education Acts and its work was assumed by the London County Council in April 1904. The club continued as the LCC (Education) Staff Dramatic Club or more simply the LCC Dramatic Club until 1965. In that year the provisions of the London Local Government Act of 1963 came into force and the newly formed Greater London Council began its work. The club was subsequently known as the Greater London Council (Staff) Dramatic Club.
