MEMBERS MEMORABILIA

Warning: Some historical items shown here contain material which some might find offensive. Music Hall and Variety ephemera reflect the time period in which they were created in their attitudes to race, gender, class, sexual orientation and disability. The use of the material is not condoned by the British Music Hall Society but we are committed to providing access to the material of the period so we can learn from it.

 

This section is for BMHS members to display any posters, photographs, programmes, showcards or anything else of interest from the golden days of variety and music hall. Please send scans of any memorabilia to Geoff Bowden callboyeditor@britishmusichallsociety.com
