About this show

A jaunty romp through the history of the Golden Age of Music Hall revealing its dark underbelly. Experienced music hall artists, TOMMY PARSONS and AIRLIE SCOTT take you on a musical journey from the very beginnings of music hall through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, onto wartime jingoism and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War. Not just drunken toffs, cross-dressing, risque sexuality, homelessness, decadence and war casualties across the Empire...but also plenty of booze and singalong songs as well! A fun sing-along evening is guaranteed for people of all ages and highly illuminating for those interested in the roots of popular entertainment, the culture of the late Victorian era and The First World War.
