Mrs Osborn goes to Wilton's Music Hall

I went to a wedding at Wilton's Music Hall at the weekend - what a magical setting for a lovely wedding. You can never have enough fairy lights, in my opinion.
Wilton's is the oldest Grand Music Hall in the world, dating back to the 1850s. After 22 years as a music hall, it was used by a Methodist Mission, then a shelter for those who were bombed out of their homes during WW2, and a sorting place for rags in the 1950s. It is now used for performances, plays, operas and pub quizzes - as well as being available to hire for weddings. Wilton's has fallen into disrepair, but its crumbling structure and interior gives the place unique charm. Click here to find out more about the work being undertaken to save Wilton's.

On the way there this sign for an Infant Nursery appeared out of the gloom


  1. I love Wiltons, I saw Marc Almond and Baby Dee perform there a few years ago and it was a magical concert.

  2. hello Zoe! was the hall draped in lights for the concert too?

  3. There were a few lights but not in drapes like that. What an amazing place for a wedding!
