1900 – 1930
 THE MUSIC HALL & VARIETY YEARS
‘THE NEW GRAND PALACE OF VARIETIES’

We were founded by one of the kings of Music Hall Dan Leno (who created the role of the Pantomime Dame!), with the ambition of providing a stage and a venue for performers and locals of the Battersea Area. We held regular performances by all the Music Hall & Variety greats, from Marie Lloyd to the world famous Charlie Chaplin. After cutting his teeth here with us, one of our managers, Walter Gibbons, went on to build The Palladium!
