British Music Hall can be traced back at least 500 years when English royalty imported
musicians to entertain in royal courts. These entertainers eventually traveled England
entertaining the locals in parks and taverns. Music Hall retained its popularity until after
World War I when it lost support to the movies and the radio and then after World War II to TV.

However, in the United States where vaudeville had met the same fate, in 1965, The
British Players staged their first Old Time Music Hall in Washington’s British Embassy,
and it was an instant success. Come and enjoy a special presentation by the British
Players where audience participation and singing along with the artists is encouraged.
