The Empress in Brixton – contemporary illustration

In the second Music Hall Wednesday, Bill Linskey, chair of The Brixton Society and of the Lambeth Local History Forum, will talk about the history of The Empress Theatre of Varieties. 

On the corner of Bernays Grove and Brighton Terrace, it opened in 1898 and quickly became one of Brixton’s best known venues. It was described as “one of the finest of London’s suburban music halls”.

Bill’s talk will draw on a variety of sources including contemporary newspaper reports.

Hosted by the Brixton Music Hall Project.
