For the final event in Music Hall Wednesdays, a panel will discuss how music hall linked Brixton to the world and how performance names and personas disguised true identities.

With Alison Young (British Music Hall Society); Steve Martin, (Brixton-based historian and author specialising in Black British history); Amy Matthewson, (Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London).

Hosted by the Brixton Music Hall project.
