Tuesday 7th April from 10am

And now, for your entertainment...

Join Phil Sedgley for an entertaining journey through the history of entertainment, from 19th century informal singsongs in taverns, tearooms and musical clubs to the 'explosion' of music hall entertainments. Learn about speciality acts on stage and the popular entertainers of the day, well-known songs, the lives of some of the 'superstars' and more, and discover how the legacy of the music hall influenced the variety shows that replaced the halls and later references in film, TV and music.

Audience participation highly encouraged! 

As with all our Chit Chat events this talk is completely free to attend. Arrive for 10am for a free hot drink, Phil will begin his talk around 10.30am. No booking required, just turn up.
