Lost Empires: The Last Days of Music Hall & Variety with Wilf Lower

Friday 16th November, 10.30am - 12.30pm

From pubs’ to ‘palaces’, music hall provided popular entertainment for all, surviving both cinema and radio, but television proved too much and it died – although variety struggled on, and its traditions continue.

Join professional lecturer Wilf Lower as he gives a light-hearted look at the theatres, the performers (in front and behind the curtains!) from Marie Lloyd to Max Miller, Gracie Fields to Ken Dodd; and the very British ‘French Revues’ of the fifties: all from an unusual and unique perspective that’s revealed during the talk. Features film clips.
