" Provided in the Interests of
Amateur Theatre "

The Strand Electric and Engineering Company was founded in 1914 by Arthur Earnshaw and Philip Sheridan, who were both working as electricians in the heart of London's theatre land.

From its inception Strand Electric was keen to provide information that was gained through experience in professional theatre, to smaller theatres and amateur groups, through its many freely available catalogues, fact sheets and journal "TABS".

The aim of this site is to provide access again to this information which has become lost over time, as much is still very relevant to those working in theatre today.
