An Entertainment of Unexampled Brilliance

In book news, may we remind you of the latest title penned by Mary Evans Head of Sales & Research, Lucinda Gosling, which traces the fascinating history of one of London’s most familiar landmarks. ‘The London Hippodrome – An Entertainment of Unexampled Brilliance’ has a foreword by Sir Michael Grade and an introduction by Dame Shirley Bassey no less, and reveals a rich past that includes everything from plunging elephants and the first performance of jazz in Britain, to the stage debut of a twelve year-old Julie Andrews and Judy Garland’s final, beleagured UK performances.

The book is lavishly illustrated (with Mary Evans Picture Library contributing over 100 images from the archive), and is available from all good book retailers. Signed editions can be purchased from Goldsboro Books
