Wilton's Music Hall, Shadwell

      John Cain's talk on Music Hall, 14th December 2019

This is the first of two items on the origins of the Victorian Music Hall tradition. It consists of a recording of the talk given by folk singer and Music Hall enthusiast John Cain at the meeting of the News From Nowhere Club on Saturday 14th Dec 2019. John illustrates his very entertaining talk with short bursts of song and fills in a great deal of historical background as well as personal views on everything he describes. We hope to take another visit to this topic when we talk to John Whitehorn, another local Music Hall enthusiast, early in the New Year.

News From Nowhere is an independent Waltham Forest club that hosts year-round talks and discussions on a wide variety of topics. Although they have been doing it for a long time they have only recently established an online presence and their new website is here:
