Quill & Inkling

Theatre Company

Our aim is very simple: to provide exciting theatrical experiences.

We are passionate that theatre has something to offer to everyone, and we wish to make our productions and projects accessible to as many people as possible by taking them out to rural communities as well as more established venues.

Through being creative with our resources and establishing effective partnerships in the public and private sectors we wish to keep prices affordable to all. By embracing the theatrical experience we hope to enthuse young and old alike with dynamic retellings of classic tales as well as bringing exciting new writing to life.

A Very Victorian Weekend

  • Brodsworth Hall & Gardens DN5 7XJ (map)

  • When: Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th August 2019

  • What time: 11:00am - 5:00pm

  • Where: Brodsworth Hall & Gardens, Brodsworth, DN5 7XJ

Join us for a quintessentially British event. A Rambunctious, raucous and rowdy panegyric presentation of the mesmerisingly monumentally mediocre ministrations of the Music Hall! (Ooh)  

The Victorian Music Hall was a rich and fertile ground for performers of the day. Comedy sketches, melodramatic moments and, of course, singalongs were very popular amongst all social classes, making the music halls a great social leveller, but also, due to their creative ways of getting around censorship laws, quite controversial.

With our chairman, and star lady, we shall present three mini music halls, featuring songs, sketches and the dreaded audience participation! Interspersed with a dash of history (or perhaps gin) on the rise and legacy of the music halls, as well as the great stars of the day like Marie Lloyd and George Leyburn.
