2017 Music Hall

Edwardian Music Hall

Compiled and Directed by Chris Boott

5 nights in February 2017

The audience were served with a meal and a traditional Victorian/Edwardian MUSIC HALL comprising of songs, sketches and melodramas. The show was divided into 3 Parts with elements of the meal during the intervals between parts.

Music Hall

There were 5 performances: Friday & Saturday nights across 2 weekends and the middle Thursday was just the show without the meal. 

The audiences really loved the evening, judging from how well they joined in, their smiles as they left and their generous comments. They had been encouraged to hiss, boo, heckle and sing-along  … which they did on every night!

One of the great variety acts that has almost been forgotten, the Sand Dance by Wilson, Keppel & Betty, from the 1920s & 1930s was recreated each night.
