article imageThe British Music Hall Society half centenary

By Alexander Baron     Aug 3, 2013 in Entertainment
London - The British Music Hall Society is half a century old this year, and is celebrating this anniversary with a three day festival.
This will be held in London from Friday, September 20 to Sunday, September 22. The President of this august organisation is veteran and at times risqué comedian Roy Hudd, whose many credits include the long running radio series The News Huddlines.
Roy is also something of a music hall historian, and is an acknowledged authority on Max Miller - the original Cheeky Chappie.
The Society is looking for volunteers to help run the event; details can be found on its website.
Membership is currently £20.00 per annum and includes a subscription to its quarterly journal The Call Boy, which for the benefit of non-thesbians does not allude to anything sexual. In this context a call boy (or call girl) was one of the people who worked behind the scenes calling actors for their cues; they have now been replaced by loudspeakers.
