City Varieties

Details

The longest running music hall in Britain, it still operates a music hall season twice yearly in April and October. The City Varieties was the location for the television series of 'The Good Old Days'. The Edwardian circle bar exhibits photographs of variety stars, past and present. Now mainly a variety theatre with family shows, live music, top stand-up comedy, hypnotism, psychic shows and Christmas pantomime.

CITY VARIETIES MUSIC HALL TOURS

Take a tour of City Varieties and absorb its fascinating history. What was once a rowdy music hall packed to the gunnels is now a glamourous and legendary venue that is a favourite for many of its performers and visitors.
These tours are a fantastic opportunity to visit such a prestigious theatre outside of show time and provide an experience and understanding that can only be achieved by coming and soaking up the atmosphere first-hand.
Please note that the City Varieties is a working building and access to all areas is not guaranteed.
