  • Audience Composition: Advertisements for mid-19th Century entertainments at these rooms suggest (variously) that no women, boys, or “disorderly characters” were admitted.



  • Performance Space Description: Little information about this venue has been found. It seems likely that it was a Concert Room attached to/affiliated with a tavern.



  • Typical Fare: Between 1842 and 1852, variety concerts were frequently staged at this venue. These tended to feature a range of singers (comic singers, balladists, sentimental vocalists, etc.), along with the occasional dancer, ventriloquist and/or tableaux vivants troupe.
