9th December – Mark Walsh ‘Here’s a Funny Thing’

A return visit from Mark Walsh and his ukulele giving a talk on the history of Music Hall and Variety. Music Hall started in London in the late 1830’s and evolved into Variety in the 1920’s.  Variety continued as a main form of entertainment until the early 1960’s. Mark is very proud to have been one of the ‘Chairman’ at the  World Famous  City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds, home of ‘The Good Old days’.
