Excellent St George's Day concert
Fantastic place!The staff were so friendly, warm and welcoming.The venue is absolutely beautiful inside and feels like a trip back in time to an old fashion Music Hall.We had the best afternoon tea during the intermission of the show, which was served to the table. Including delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes.The performers onstage were great and gave it there all to entertain the audience. It had the perfect balance of humour and heart.We will definitely be returning to enjoy the Brick Lane Music Hall experience again.
Good food, great entertainment.
If you haven't, you should. If you can get a ticket! Fabulous entertainment. St Patrick's Day dimple the best.
Great fun & value for money.
Fantastic afternoon at the BLMH pantomime. Lunch was great followed by the panto which kept us laughing all afternoon. Paid tribute to our parents Val and Pat Cody.
I have always enjoyed every moment spent at the music hall, the show, the food, the staff infact everyone makes it so special. However the seating is a bit tight, and only one disabled toilet!Would like to see better seating arrangements especially also for watching the show! I will be happy to always go because the atmosphere and people are the best.
A wonderful place to visit. Great food, beautiful decorations and marvellous show. Vince is a fabulous showman and the whole cast of his ‘Adult Pantomime’ were great.
Fantastic afternoon, amazing costumes, lots of laughter, and delicious tea.
Bit cramped but great show, and excellent afternoon tea
Had a brilliant time at the Brick Lane Music Hall. Venue is spectacular, food excellent and the show first class. Will go again!

Good. Place. To. Go
an interesting experience! i got tickets for Vincent's christmas musical. live theatre, in both musical form and comedy skits form. stand-up from the host himself too. it captures the essence of the East End of London well with its sense of humour, the kind that you wouldn't dare see get aired on live TV these days. well worth the time and price if you're looking for something unique!
What an amazing show, throughly enjoyed every minute, lovely venue and fantastic experience. Looking forward to our next visit.

“Thanks for your welcome greeting and all you did behind the scenes to make our visit so good.   The show was, as ever, first class and the food was up to usual high standard.  Thanks to you and all the staff and entertainers who worked so hard to ensure we had a good time. It was a real treat to see Vincent back in action, having really missed him last year in the pantomime.  He is a unique talent with that special gift to make people laugh with, what looks like, very little effort.  We’re aiming to get a group in for the 2023 pantomime. Thanks, once again, to everyone involved at Brick Lane Music Hall – it’s just the best, most unique entertainment and as Vincent says, the best medicine in the world.”

Debbie Nyman and the Roe Green Village group

“Last night I came for Vincent’s Jinglebell Christmas with 6 others. It took us 3 hours to get there (with the snow). BUT it was worth every minute getting there. It was a fabulous dinner, fabulous wine, fabulous show, fabulous evening and all the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Chefs fab, band fab, dancers and singers fabulous and you were extremely funny Vincent ( naughty but nice). Thank you all so much. We couldn’t  have had a better start to a wonderful Christmas.”

Jean Druce

“It was great to be back to some sort of normal as the last 2 years have been so difficult for everyone. The panto was a typical music hall production, full of innuendos and hilarious sketches. In my group there were so many who had never heard of Brick Lane but they have now, and want to return.  The costumes were fantastic and as Craig Revel Horwood would say “fab-u-lous darling” – obviously a ‘camp follower’…. Good luck to Brick Lane for the future. Here’s to many many more years of fun and enjoyment.”

Carole Matthews, Fleet U3A

“We would like to thank you for such an amazing day today. Robin Hood and his Camp Followers was the best show ever. We laughed so much everything ached. The costumes were stunning. You all worked so hard with so much energy and humour you really out did yourselves.  WOW! Double WOW!  It was like meeting up with old friends and having a great time.”

Thank you Lizzie Falls for organising this memorable day”

Heather Good, Sandlings Group Organiser

“What a wonderful day I and my group enjoyed yesterday. Thank you so much. We talked about it all the way home and even a hold up on the motorway didn’t lower our spirits. The food was delicious and hot and everyone remarked on how you managed that with so many people to serve.

The Panto was terrific and, most of the time, we had tears of laughter streaming down our faces. To cap it all I was generously presented with a lovely bouquet of red roses and a photograph for which I thank you very much. Such a lovely touch.

Thank you so much – everyone asked me “when are we coming back”. Love and best wishes to everyone involved for such splendid organisation and a happy fun filled day. ”

June Kilshaw, Skylarks Group

“I absolutely love everything about your Music Hall. From arriving into the main doors being greeted by your wonderful staff (& bears!!) to entering the main hall, it most certainly has the WOW factor. All the memorabilia is so interesting and the decoration in all rooms, even down to the toilets is amazing.

The show (Mother’s Goosed!) was fantastic. Everyone looked so colourful in their many costume changes, I haven’t laughed that much in ages. The script (and non-script) was hilarious.

To not mention the food would be criminal. Hats off to the catering staff. It still astounds me how you cater for so many people and serve piping hot delicious food.
The personal touch you give your fellow followers is so heart warming. Thank you so much for my lovely flowers and photo for my Birthday. To take the time to thank us – the paying public – for coming is unique and appreciated.”

Joanne Radley, with Crosskeys Coaches , Ashford

“I came to the matinee performance of Mother’s Goosed. I would like to express a huge “thank you” for a very entertaining, hilarious afternoon.

Thank you once more, as Arnold says, WE WILL BE BACK. Happy Christmas to all.”

Julie Freeburn 

“I wanted to let you know what a fantastic time myself and my group had on Tuesday. It was my first time as I missed their first trip and I will certainly be rebooking again!

Great food, great entertainment and excellent staff. I have to mention a few people who always stand out and that is Oscar, so efficient always there to greet you and ensures everything runs smoothly all evening. Then we have to mention Nicola at the bar, always friendly and smiling even under pressure. Another lady who always goes out of her way to help is Lisa who served on our table some of the time during the evening, and finally Charley in the box office always nice to have a conversation with her. The chef and his team must also be mentioned for the lovely hot food and of course his roast potatoes. Look forward to seeing you all again in February 2019 when I shall be bringing my usual group for the pantomime. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.”

Malcolm Ward, Malcs Tours

“Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the show and the delicious meal- all courses wonderful , but especially the vegetarian main course. Great serving staff. This was my first visit and such a wonderful venue – such fantastic show from all the cast – great singers and routines. Lots of wonderful laughter – Vincent you were brilliant. Thank you for a great visit.”

Beverley Mitchell, Bexhill Theatre Supporters

“I had the most brilliant afternoon yesterday thanks to all of you. The music and comedy were just brilliant.  The food was the best meal I have had in the 2 weeks I have been away- chef is to be commended to keep food piping hot and taste like it was just prepared for you, not for 180 people. Thanks again. I felt like Royalty the way I was treated from the time I arrived until I left. ”

Lois Moreland, New Zealand

“What a wonderful time we all had yesterday (at the Wartime show) and we congratulate the whole team on a smooth and professional feel-good show and particularly we would like to praise the catering team whose afternoon tea comes very close to that served at the Ritz Hotel in London! I had 60 extremely happy bunnies on the coach going home.”

Sylvis Baldry 

“I would like to express my thanks for such a super visit on Thursday 12 May. It is certainly an experience coming to your venue. The food was great, the staff were great and your show was superb. Many thanks. There could be no better accolade than when I said to one of your waitresses how lovely everyone was and she replied, “it’s really not hard, everyone is so lovely here I enjoy coming to work”. Also I would like to thank you for the nice touch of mentioning the group, and especially for inviting the driver to enjoy the hospitality (something that is long forgotten in all venues today). Many many thanks.”

“I would like to thank you and your cast for a truly wonderful evening at Saturday’s St George’s show. It represented all that is best about our great country and the need for the next generation to maintain our heritage. I was one of the 17 from Southend celebrating my 75th birthday ….. I was inundated with phone calls on Sunday from the rest of the crowd thanking me but the thanks go to you and your team. I look forward the seeing you soon.”
James Edbrook

“I bought 20 family members along to celebrate my brother’s birthday, we had an age span of 78 years down to 18 years and everybody had such a wonderful time. The food was great, but the show was even greater. I think you will certainly get some more visits from us in the future.”

Anne Dyer

“The more we see you, the better it becomes. We all know that it’s an outing that can guarantee fun, laughter and good food and those sort of venues are few and far between…. On the coach coming home I told my members that I’d already booked for the panto’ 2019. Guess what? Of the 62 places booked I don’t have a single one left. Maybe I should get a double decker bus?!”

Jean Feiven, Tesco Group 

“It was a wonderful show (as always). Out of my party of 32 there 20 who had never been before and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Everyone was very complimentary on the quality of the meal.”

Jenny, Jenny’s Dancing Jems

“Such an enjoyable time on Friday, great lunch followed by non-stop laughter; we were all delighted. It was also very uplifting to see and hear everyone else having such a wonderful time…. the NHS ought to put your tickets on prescription; it would be much better than most of the medicines as well as no doubt being cheaper 🤗. Thanks again and long may you continue.”

Douglas Harrison, Best of Wines

“Please pass on our thanks and congratulations to everyone concerned, including yourselves in the box office, for giving us such a fantastic experience on Friday afternoon. An absolute tonic. The meal was delicious, served piping hot by friendly efficient staff. Then we sat back, relaxed with a drink, for an afternoon of laughter and fun. We laughed until we cried and our sides ached, and that applied to all of us not just me. The costumes were also great. It’s such a heartwarming, magical place to be, where you can forget all your cares and woes!!”

Brenda Donovan

“Would you please convey my thanks to all those who made our trip to Brick Lane yesterday so memorable. The coach just buzzed with excitement as we left. You must have the best working team of people in the country from the people who met us coming in, to those who cooked and served our food, manned the bar and tea facilities and your administration. They show so much care and attention it’s a pleasure to enter the building and they do it all ‘as one team’. I’ve been round the world quite a bit but I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s nowhere quite like Brick Lane. Performance was superb. We all said we would be prepared to sit there and see it all over again. What more recommendation could you have than that?”
Jean Feiven, TESCO RSA Group

We were welcomed and shown to our seats and everyone was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The kitchen staff did an excellent job on the afternoon tea, it was delicious and beautifully presented. The idea of giving organisers a bunch of flowers with a photograph as well as Birthdays and anniversaries was a lovely gesture.”

“I had a group of 42 Rotarians on a tour for 3 days in and around London and one of the highlights of our tour was the show at Brick Lane Music Hall.

Kenny Cantor, Lowestoft Rotary Club

Margeurita McCartney

“I just want to say a very big ‘thank you’ to the cast, the catering staff, and admin personnel who all helped in making our visit to the Summertime Showcase yesterday so memorable. It was a first class show with a first class meal. The coach just buzzed on our way home. I have 46 seats booked for the Panto and 56 would like to go at the moment. I don’t think I’ve ever had so many and I’ve been a coordinator for Tesco RSA doing 10 outings a year for the past 15 years. I think this goes without saying that yesterday was a complete success. One of my ladies recently lost her husband and things have been extremely difficult for her. It was an absolute joy to see her laugh again, you were the tonic she needed.”

It was a truly wonderful show which had everything – so much to enjoy. What always comes across at Brick Lane is the sheer enjoyment of the cast as well as the audience – rarely do you see a show performed by a company who are so obviously at one with each other. What you do at BLMH is truly magical and long may it continue..”
June Brewer, Friends of Marlowe Theatre

“Thank you all for a great afternoon. For the wonderful show, for the welcome, the hospitality….. Brick Lane is a very special place – it’s full of laughter, not to mention the talent.

John E Oliver, Folkestone

“I came to see your panto’ last week with some friends from Maidstone, our first visit, and had an awesome time. I haven’t stopped hurting yet from laughing so much.

Thank you again for all your hard work in keeping Music Hall alive in London.”

Mr Whatling, London

“Had the greatest evening at your wonderful show, There’ll Always Be An England as part of a weekend away. The meal was perfection in every respect, served by the most attentive staff formed from many nationalities, and in the glorious setting that you have clearly worked so hard to attain. Then to top it up, the most moving, funny and entertaining show performed with great voices under talented musical direction. I shall sing your praises whenever the opportunity arises. Thank you all once again. Please do not stop.”

David Frost, Lowestoft

“This was the second time l have visited the Music Hall with my group in 3 weeks and although both shows were different, they were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who came with me.

I am coming for the last of my current group visits in November and already people are getting excited. Once again thank you for giving my group a wonderful time and lasting memories.”

Alan Hayes, Teston Tours, Maidstone

“We cannot express enough the most enjoyable time we had at Be Bop a Lula today, being fed and entertained by all of you at Brick Lane Music Hall.

Pam Ducker, Cambridge

“Yet again, you thoroughly entertained us at Be Bop a Lula yesterday. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with the fun of the show. It was lovely to see the young dancers, they really did a very good job. The sketch about Lucky the dog was so funny, we were talking about it all the way home.”

We had a couple of hours in Greenwich before we came on to Brick Lane so we made a day of it with the highlight being our visit to you of course. One of our friends at our table said it was the best show he had ever seen – and he sees a LOT of shows! Many, many congratulations Vincent – to you and to everyone. Apart from the great performers, all your staff are superb and so helpful and welcoming. Every one of them deserves a pat on the back. We shall definitely be back.”

I had no idea whether I had made the right choice for this special occasion until the moment we set foot in the door of your very beautiful venue. I can honestly say, I have not seen him so animated and in his element in a very long time.

We had a show at our theatre where they sang ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ but it just wasn’t the same!”

“We drove to London to visit Brick Lane Music Hall for the first time yesterday and I felt I had to write and say how much my husband and I enjoyed absolutely everything.  We received the best of consideration and felt we were part of a lovely party to celebrate our Queen’s 60 Glorious Years, which is a truly great show.  The lunch was absolutely superb, in fact everything was absolutely superb!  The “Diamond Jubilee” Souvenir Programme is very informative and interesting and we have both already read it from cover to cover.  What a friendly bunch of people your staff are too; nothing was too much trouble, so very helpful in every respect from the moment we arrived.  A very memorable afternoon.”

Each time we come to Brick Lane the shows get better and better.  Also the food is always excellent, your afternoon teas are better than most of the London hotels.  Your “Diamond Jubilee” Souvenir Programme is brilliant. It is a very good programme, I have now read it from cover to cover and it is most interesting. Keep up the good work!”
