For the Victorian working classes and lower-middle classes, music hall or 'variety' entertainment offered an affordable alternative to so-called legitimate theatre. A full evening's entertainment - with good food and abundant alcohol - could be purchased for just a few pence. Many music halls competed against each other in London at the time. The Imperial was in Tothill Street, Westminster, near the modern site of St James’ Park tube station.
