Kenton finally gets new sign... but only for TV episode

THE Kenton Theatre was transported back in time for an episode of ITV drama series Endeavour.

A cast and crew of about 30 people, including stars Shaun Evans and Roger Allam, filmed at the historic Henley venue on Tuesday.

The show, a prequel to Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse series, is set in the Sixties so the theatre had to be redecorated.

It doubled as the fictitious Empire Theatre in Oxford, where Endeavour is set, so most of the signs outside were changed.

Posters advertising a variety show headlined by a ventriloquist act called Benny and Clyde were plastered on the notice boards.
