About this Event

This is a virtual tour conducted live hosted via Zoom video conferencing where your guide will show slides and give a talk to accompany them. There will be the opportunity for questions both during and after the talk.

==================================================================

Music Hall developed in the mid 19th century and as the century progressed it mutated into Variety theatre. By the First World War there were dozens of purpose built theatres across London. Many of them were designed by the incomparable Frank Matcham. But with competition from radio, the movies and finally television, Variety declined and by the late 1950s it was all but gone. However some of the buildings survive. Join Stephen to hear the story of Music Halls and Variety theatres in London and along the way learn about some of the legendary performers who graced their stages.

Review by Rosalind - November 2020

"Very interesting virtual tour of music hall and London’s old theatres, along with Dan Leno, Marie Lloyd and the “Down at the Old Bull and Bush” song, with lots of interesting links to reference sources e-mailed to us afterwards. Now you must do another virtual tour on lots more of the stars and their songs! Fantastic fun."
