By the 1890s, music halls had developed into variety theatres, catering for all classes of society. This playbill advertising the South London Palace is a good example of the range of acts that would appear on a single evening. Each performer would have three or four songs or different acts in their repertoire and would have performed them in many different halls across the country. A performer could sing the same song for the whole of their career because it was the acts that moved around not the audiences.
