This event is no longer available.

125 years ago when Leyton Great Hall was first built as a place of entertainment Music Hall was in its prime. Nelly Power was a force to be reckoned within an era before female emancipation, she was a Male impersonator, soubrette and headliner at all the major theatres, not to mention a wealthy property owner who performed a daring rescue at sea. But life was not a bed of roses for our heroine; betrayed by unscrupulous men and usurped by the next teenage sensation, her end was both sad and premature. The “teenage sensation” was, of course, Marie Lloyd, the Queen of the Music Hall. Join us as we tell Nelly's tales through the subversive lens of music hall and the story of one amazing woman.
