Book – Nunhead and the Music Hall

by Rex Batten.

From the middle of the nineteenth century, until the cinema supplanted it, the Music Hall was popular entertainment. It’s successor, Variety, was to continue the tradition until the 1960s when television finally killed the popular provincial theatre. It is ironic that Nunhead Cemetery flourished and died over the same time span.

This book, Nunhead and the Music Hall, is a collection of pictures and biographical details telling the stories of famous Music Hall personalities buried in Nunhead Cemetery, including a Proprietor, a Song Writer, A Lady Singer, a Superstar and more.

A4 softback, 40 pages with illustrations (some colour).
