Sale Information

A small archive of theatrical ephemera that belonged to Arthur Brough (1905-1978), best known for his portrayal of Mr Grainger in the long running TV series ‘Are You Being Served?’ is coming up for auction in the Toys and Collectables sale. The archive comprises letters, including examples from Laurence Olivier, Joan Plowright and Sybil Thorndike,  programmes, photographs and theatrical ephemera relating to the Leas Pavilion and The Arthur Brough Players, photographs and personal documents relating to Brough’s spell in the Royal Navy, and an invitation to appear at The Royal Variety Performance in 1963. There are also a number of photographs by renowned photographer Angus McBean of Laurence Olivier, Joan Plowright, Michael Redgrave and Joan Greenwood, all signed and inscribed to Arthur by the sitters. The archive has been kept by Brough’s family since his death in 1978 and is being offered with an estimate of £500-700 (plus buyer’s premium).
