All the proceeds from the two bights will go to the Street Pastors based at the Malt Cross on St James’s Street Nottingham


Take care all



We Have written a show called Definitely Not Respectable which is the history of the Malt Cross when it was a music Hall by performance of the spoken word and song on Friday 15th June 2018 and Saturday 16thJune 2018

We are giving our services free of charge and the ticket price of £7.00 will go to the malt cross to support the Street Pastors 

About the show

Written and performed by us, it is set in Victorian Nottingham.   The town boasted eleven music halls and the Malt Cross was purpose built on St James’s street.   The shows were risqué,political, and humorous. There was singing and dancing. Men would come to see girls perform in fleshing’s.   The premises were brightly lit, colourful with food at a price that many could afford.   A relief from the cruel reality of Victorian life if you were in the lower order Nottingham society.

The watch committee would see the brightly coloured posters over the town and rather than rip them down they would put a label over them saying ‘DEFINITELY NOT RESPECTABLE’   This of course was an even better reason to go.

Joseph Merrick  known as the elephant man appeared..  Also Leo Dryden,  Sam Torr and George Lashwood.   Lily Harley was her stage name.   She was Hannah Chaplin.  The Chaplin’s were a music Hall family and her son was the famous Charlie Chaplin

We hope you may help us or come along for a night of entertainment
