Wilton's Music Hall
The Players’ Joys & Wilton’s Music Hall Present
The Magnificent Music Hall – back by popular demand!
The Players’ have been recreating Victorian music hall for 75 years. Produced by Jan Hunt, spiritual grand-daughter of East End girl-turned-superstar Marie Lloyd, the show features songs, comedy, magic and that special staple of music hall – the audience sing-along.
Music hall developed as a form of popular entertainment in Britain in the 19th century. A mixture of songs, comedy and speciality acts such as conjuring, escapology and musical dexterity; it entertained patrons who were busy drinking and smoking the length and breadth of the country. Song sheets will be provided!.
“Anyone who enjoys a modern day alt-cabaret extravaganza such as La Cirque should be glad of the chance to see how the earlier generation laid down the conventions”
“A joyful outing to a forgotten era for fans of the genre”
“This is cutting edge Victoriana… rich in the eccentricities beloved by the British and their visitors”
