The Linbury Prize marks 30 years at the National Theatre

2019 marks 30 years since the Linbury Prize was first held at the National Theatre. The first exhibition for emerging designers took place in 1987 at the Theatre Museum, arranged by Anya Sainsbury. In 1989 the first Linbury Biennial Prize for Stage Design was held at the NT and the Prize is still held here today. Over the 30 years, more than 1,200 young designers have entered the Linbury Prize for Stage Design.
