Overview

  • Alternate Names: Bermondsey Hotel Concert Rooms?



  • Performance Space Description: Little is known about this venue. Kift notes that Henry Pullan (later proprietor of Pullan’s Music Hall, Bradford) was the manager of a Concert Room in the Bermondsey Hotel in 1842, however, which might be the venue in question.



  • Typical Fare: In some cases, at least, the saloon seems to have offered variety bills, featuring singers & dancers.
