Wilton’s Music Hall started in 1859 as a house that turned into a pub, then a music hall, then a warehouse, and is now once again a theatre space.

A conservation of the building hasn’t restored it to its original Victorian glory, but preserved the appearance as it was at the turn of the century, when it was in a pretty sorry state. The conservation made the building usable while retaining the semi-derelict appearance that makes it such an interesting building to visit.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
