Music hall as a form of popular entertainment lasted from around 1860 through to 1950, and over that period a vast number of songs were produced. There is no definitive record of how many, but it certainly runs into the thousands. Typically, a music hall song consists of a number of verses sung by the performer, with the audience encouraged to join in with the chorus.

The Players’ is lucky enough to own copies of the words and music for hundreds of music hall songs and we are in the final stages of creating a unique music hall song database.
