The OAE archive is huge. In just 30 short years we've amassed a lot of stuff. At OAE HQ and at a secret warehouse location in Hounslow we've got boxes and boxes of OAE goodies. Early pictures of the Orchestra, congratulatory letters from fans, literally hundreds of promotional head-shots of Simon Rattle. You name it, we've got it.
That includes stacks and stacks of archive footage, most of it on VHS. We're hoping to share some of these gems in full throughout our 30th Birthday season, but until then, enjoy this short journey back in time.
