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

The Music Hall developed in the mid 19th century and by the First World War there were dozens of purpose built Music Halls across London. Many of them were designed by the incomparable Frank Matcham. But with competition from radio, the movies and finally television, Music Hall 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 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."

Cost: £12
