On these pages you will find (growing slowly over the coming weeks) comprehensive listings of:
Works about Music Hall and Variety – general, biographical and fictional – from my own collection and occasionally elsewhere.
Movies that are about the subject – of which there are more than you might think – but mostly comedies that were vehicles for the popular stars of the day. The most obvious of these are those featuring George Formby, Gracie Fields and The Crazy Gang, plus the output of Mancunian Films.
Details of almost all recordings (except 78rpm) of Music Hall and Variety artists over the past 60 years on vinyl, CD and online. The earliest will now be available only though car boot sales and the like.
