When to Get There
The music hall’s program is updated regularly, offering a variety of year-round entertainment. Visitors looking for an immersive London experience may enjoy the venue’s holiday events, such as pantomimes and Christmas cabarets.
British music halls date back to around 1850, and were popular well into the 20th century, before the ascent of movies, radio, and television. The variety show venues combined three beloved British staples: drinking, dining, and sing-a-longs. Many music hall-style songs are still familiar today, including “I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside,” “Maybe it's Because I'm a Londoner,” and “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two).”
