Tivoli Theatre ‘Welcome Home’ program

On 23 March 1920, the Smith crew finally arrived in Adelaide after the epic flight and victory lap around Australia.
The victorious men were that night hosted at the Tivoli Theatre (now Her Majesty’s Theatre) by Ross Smith’s former 3rd Light Horse Regiment.

Epic flight aficionados will note the wrong plane is featured on the front of the program – most likely because the designers would not have seen the Vimy before it was printed.

The program is featured in Her Majesty’s Pleasure, a book of theatre memorabilia published by the Adelaide Festival Centre in 2019. Image courtesy of the SLSA [PRG 18/34/6].
