Storyline

A re-creation of the Music Hall variety shows that were popular in the late Victorian and the Edwardian periods (late 1800s and early 1900s). Entertainers performed musical, comedy, magic and recitation acts on stage in Edwardian costume, in some cases appearing as famous Edwardian music hall performers such as Vesta Tilley. Even the audience was dressed in authentic 1900s costumes. The show always ended with the entire cast and the audience singing a rousing rendition of "Down at the Old Bull and Bush".

Trivia

Leonard Sachs (the compère) was famous for his alliterative multisyllabic introduction of each act, during which the audience would 'ooh' and 'aah' at each convoluted phrase. He ended each introduction by banging a gavel on his podium. See more »
