Play And Pageant Union


Formed after World War I in 1920 after uniting the Pageant Committee with the indoor dramatic activities of the Suburb, which included such institutions as the Stuart Murray Memorial Theatre.
Eventually the Play and Pageant Union merged with the Speedwell Players in 1966 to form the Garden Suburb Theatre which is still active now.
