Maskelyne and Cooke programme for the Egyptian Hall, 25th consecutive year

25th consecutive year, 1897-1898. The programme includes the sketch ‘Trapped by Magic’ which was first presented on 7 May 1898, according to the book on the Egyptian Hall by George Jenness. However, the programme does not include the sketch ‘The Gnome’s Grot’ which was introduced at the start of the Christmas shows on 16 December 1898, according to Jenness. The likely date of this programme is therefore between 7 May 1898 and 16 December 1898.
