Sunday 7th April 2019

When: 5.30pm   
Where: Abbey House

Produced by Funny Story Productions in association with Kick In The Head
Written by Mitch Feral
Starring Miss Airlie Scott and Mr Tommy Parsons

Directed by Jan Hunt of BBC Televisions' The Good Old Days Fame and Paper Moon Theatre Company.

After the success of Old Herbaceous Kick In The Head are back with a jaunty romp through the history of the Golden age of Music Hall, often delving into its dark underbelly.

Experienced music hall artists, TOMMY PARSONS and AIRLIE SCOTT take you on a musical journey from the very beginnings of music hall through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, onto wartime jingoism and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War. Not just drunken toffs, risqué sexuality, homelessness, decadence and war casualties across the Empire... but plenty of booze and sing along songs as well!

Advance tickets: Adult £15, Abbey Member £12

On the door: Adult £18, Abbey Member £15.

Performance: 1800
