Music Hall - it's evolution, growth and decline with John Cain

Club resident John Cain tells the story of the Music Hall.

In this unique presentation John will trace it's origins in smoky pub back rooms to it's time as the pinnacle of popular entertainment appealing to all classes and covering all kinds of entertainment and it's slow metamorphosis into variety and TV.

And along the way we'll have plenty of the glorious songs that still make up so much of the backbone of the British folk repertoire.

And if your eye-site doesn't fail ya, you could see right to Australia - All together now....!!!!

Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
