The Music Hall Story
The first hall opened in 1852 at South London. By 1885 classic designs had replaced gaudy ones. King George V was at the first Royal Variety Show in 1912, still a charity gala today. From 1945 TV and radio caused most halls to shut by the 1960s. Now TV is reviving variety! The world export (Britain’s) Got Talent with live audiences and spesh acts, also donates to EABF the retired artistes’ fund.

 Charlie Chaplin 1920, was in Music Hall from 5! His tragic East End childhood is evoked in his 1952 film Limelight.
