John Major the Showgirl - Tonight at Leicester Square Theatre

John Major the Showgirl – Tonight at Leicester Square Theatre

This event could possibly be the best £12.50 you’ve ever spent. Ex-Prime Minister John Major launches his history of the British Music Hall, which his family was a party to.

JOHN MAJOR “My Old Man” | Wednesday, 19 September | 7pm, doors open 6pm | £10 Times+ members/£12.50 non-members

To celebrate the publication of his new book, My Old Man: A Personal History of Music Hall, join former prime minister, John Major, as he uses his own unconventional family past to tell the richly colourful story of the British music hall. Sir John will share anecdotes of the great performers of the day, such as Marie Lloyd, Vesta Tilley and George Robey and conjure up a lost age of entertainment. There will be a question and answer session followed by a book signing.

And if you’re not in the mood for some music hall mayhem, try female sketch comedy duo Checkley & Bush downstairs in the lounge venue at the Leicester Square Theatre.
