Singing Les Roastbeef

Singing Les Roastbeef
 
  7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

In the glory years of the Parisian ‘café-concert’ music hall, one comedy character above all others was loved by French audiences: the Englishman.

Join Hannah Scott, University of Nottingham, for an introduction to these roast beef-scoffing, beer-quaffing figures of fun from the 19th century.

After a short talk, enjoy a performance of comic songs (with translations) complete with exaggerated English accents, stick-on sideburns, and the frumpiest outfits in Europe.

Cost: Free of Charge
