Marking the 50th anniversary of the end of UK theatre censorship ushered in by the Theatres Act of 1968, Index on Censorship hosted an educational and interactive workshop with young people at the British Library. The event was funded by the Noel Coward Foundation. The aim of the workshop was for young people to explore the history of censorship in British theatre, including the Noel Coward works censored by the Lord Chamberlain’s office, while also promoting open discussion around contemporary issues.

Jemimah Steinfeld, deputy editor of Index on Censorship magazine, facilitated the workshop.
