The programme consists of a matt cream single sheet of thick paper with a vertical spinal fold, printed with black ink. The cast and scenes lists are presented across the centre pages.

This performance is of the comic opera, Iolanthe (also known as The Peer and the Peri), which was written by the famous Mr. W.S. Gilbert and composed by the equally talented Mr A. Sullivan. Mr Gilbert and Mr Sullivan collaborated on many operas together; they were a prolific and successful two-man team who created fourteen comic operas together over a period of around 25 years. William S. Gilbert, born in London, (1836-1911) was a successful lyricist, poet and illustrator. Arthur S. Sullivan was the composer, also born in London, (1842-1900), the son of a military band master.
