Wilton's

Part of Scene in Time, Wilton's yearly heritage weekends

24th October to 25th October . Stalls from 10am, performances from 11am - 6pm .
Free

This free family weekender (all ages welcome) will be a full on tribute to music hall and Wilton’s heritage. Get involved with community music hall shows, make friends over arts and crafts activities, sing along to a Victorian hit list, listen to memories of music hall and Wilton's or leave your own in our memory booths and generally soak up a good old fashioned East End atmosphere.

The John Wilton Room, formerly known as The Library due to our random collection of books, leaflets and flyers, will also be officially opened this weekend as a dedicated history and heritage room, with lots of fascinating and informative displays.

  • Art, Music Hall and Circus in the Belle Époque
    10:30am - 4pm at the National Gallery, 6pm - 10pm at Wilton's
    Alongside our family event on the Saturday, The National Gallery will be holding a study day for adults. From trick-riding to trapeze, they will be taking a closer look at the sheer variety and ingenuity of circus and music hall acts and how these performances inspired the Impressionists and others, to innovate. Wilton's and the National Gallery are offering a special combined ticket that includes access to: the study day (taking place at the National Gallery between 11am - 4pm), a special historic talk at Wilton's about the entertainment that took place here in the Victorian age (from 6pm) and entry to Wilton's Cockney Sing-A-Long. 
    For more information on the study day: nationalgallery.org.uk/art-music-hall.
