The Belfast Empire, the Royal Hippodrome and the newly restored Grand Opera House, along with the cine-variety theatres such as the Gaiety and Colosseum, are all familiar names to the citizens of Belfast, yet they are only the tip of the iceberg.

Long gone and buried deep are more buildings that offered regular entertainment to the populace. This book recalls the beginnings of music halls and theatre in the early seventeenth- century until its final days in the mid-twentieth century. It traces their development, detailing the history of the buildings while recounting celebrity performances.

The text is accompanied by beautiful period sketches and illustrations that bring a bygone era to life.
