In London, music hall audiences were noticeably segregated. West End theatres attracted a wealthy clientele; suburban music halls were frequented by tradesmen, shopkeepers, or army and navy men on holiday; while small halls in areas like Stepney were had a predominantly working class clientele.
It was very different in the provinces and in coastal towns such as Whitby. Music halls were often located in the centre of the town and were frequented by all classes. The West Cliff Saloon is a good example, where only the price of ticket that one could afford set one apart from the richer or poorer people in the community.
