This event is part of:
The world-famous Players’ Theatre Club present an hour of traditional Music Hall for you to join in those famous old choruses such as: “My old man said: ‘Follow the van’”.
Song-sheets will be provided.
Music hall as a form of popular entertainment lasted from around 1860 through to 1950, and over that period a vast number of songs were produced. There is no definitive record of how many, but it certainly runs into the thousands. Typically, a music hall song consists of a number of verses sung by the performer, with the audience encouraged to join in with the chorus.
The Players’ Theatre Club dates from 1929, and continue to put on great shows.
