It is with deep sadness that our President Roy Hudd OBE passed away on 15th March
2020. Roy was not only a wonderful effervescent performer and Music Hall and Variety aficionado but also the nicest, kindest and most generous man.
With love to his Wife Debbie and all his family and friends at this sad time.
Debbie Hudd has very kindly said that donations in memory of Roy will go to The British Music Hall Society, saying,
"When people think of Roy, they think of Music Hall. Roy was thrilled with the Society and therefore I would like donations in memory of him to go to the BMHS."
Chairman Adam Borzone has set up an online donation page which will be open until 1st
July. To make an online donation please go to: www.facebook.com/donate/209805226975924/10157292798928196
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
ROY HUDD OBE
Thanks for dropping in on our website.
We are a bunch of mad keen fans of music hall and variety. Some of us are just fans who love the wit, music and nostalgia of our two greatest periods of light entertainment while others are serious students of the two art forms. We have, in our ranks, highly respected writers and musicians, experts on social history and the history of the genre. We have performers (amateur and professional, young and old) of the material and, best of all in my book, folk who simply love to join in, laugh and enjoy our rich popular entertainment heritage in the company of like souls.
Every year our membership grows so why not join us TODAY!
