Lambeth Cyclists architecture ride report: 22 January 2011: Circus and Music Hall Ride

Roll up, roll up and ride on this celebration of two entertainment forms that have their genesis in Lambeth - Circus and Music Hall.

As our travelling show journeyed through Lambeth, Hackney and the City of Westminster we reflected on the construction intricacies of the ephemeral venue, explore a Victorian dust destructor rejuvenated for circus, and browse the delights of Matchless Matcham's Empires, Hippodromes and Coliseums.

Your Ringmaster and Call Boy for the afternoon  Charlie Holland whose depth of knowledge of circus and music hall was balanced by a depth of ignorance about architecture.

Our thanks to Charlie Holland for leading this ride.
