From around 1850 and for over one hundred years MUSIC HALL thrived in Britain.

This fully illustrated talk with stunning sound archives traces the history of the MUSIC HALL as it evolved, and the stars it created from Marie Lloyd to Little Tich, from Harry Champion to Max Miller and from Tessie O'Shea to Morecambe and Wise.

The talk lasts for 55-60 minutes and includes rare images and recordings of classic performances by the original performers of the Music Hall - and how the BBC 'The Good Old Days' developed into a national treasure.

This talk is now available as a ZOOM presentation
