On what would have been Roy Hudd’s 84th Birthday, we are launching Music Hall and Variety Day.
A day to celebrate Music Hall and Variety.
In honour of our former President Roy Hudd OBE we will be launching an annual day to celebrate Music Hall and Variety on Saturday 16 May 2020. Roy was our President of the Society for 28 years until his death last month, and the day marks his birthday.
Chairman Adam Borzone said: “This year, more than ever, it is important to pay tribute to those we have lost. Roy Hudd brought joy to many during his lifetime. He was one of Music Hall’s most passionate and talented champions. It is fitting that the community he did so much for comes together and celebrates by sharing memories of this era.”
“We wish to make this an annual event and hope in the future Music Hall and Variety Day will be marked with further events including talks, shows and exhibitions. This initiative presents an opportunity for performers, theatre historians, theatre collections and collectors to unite and engage with us in providing some entertainment and joy.”
Music Hall and Variety theatre fans are being invited to celebrate the day by sharing personal artifacts, collections and memories of the genre using the hashtag #musichallvarietyday
