Theatre programme made of silk

The object is a printed programme for a performance of Cinderalla at the Theatre Dalby, in Lincs/Leicester or the Midlands (owner isn't sure). It is made from silk and dated 1849, and was given as a gift by its then owner to a coachman. The coachman passed it down and now it is owned by the coachman's great great grandfather. It is a grand and ornate object for what may have been a high profile theatre production.
