Aldermaston Players

2014 Music Hall

Music Hall

Aldermaston Players 2014 annual Dinner/Theatre evenings were reminders of the BBC’s The Good Old Days that were a reincarnation of the Victorian Music Halls. Again this year the entertainment was a variety of music and sketches all set in the Victorian/Edwardian pre-1914 era and the Great War era.

The interest this year encouraged us to put on an extra night, without a meal, to accommodate patrons who didn’t want supper or couldn’t make one of the other dates.
