The Naughty Nineties Music Hall

The Naughty Nineties present a selection of the period’s greatest hits, introduced by their very own gavel-wielding Master of Ceremonies. Back in days before radio, TV and the internet the stars of Britain’s Music Halls – such as Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno - were household names. The songs they sang became part of popular culture and many are still well known today. The Naughty Nineties are dedicated to preserving this important slice of our heritage and they regularly appear across London and the south-east. Their shows are performed in period costume and singing along is actively encouraged! This show also contains a surprise activity at the end!
