8th year in London. The programme says ‘no performance on Mondays’. According to the book by Jenness on the Egyptian Hall, this lasted from 12 January 1880 to end-May 1880. The closure was said to be “because of health reasons of Maskelyne”.

This programme is in the Paul Kieve Collection. We are grateful for his permission in 2019 to display it on this website. The programme lists 13 items which can be found by clicking on View Details. Interestingly, the programme states: Owing to the extreme length of the programme, the public are respectfully requested not to indulge in indiscriminate encores, otherwise part of it must necessarily be omitted.

Although 1875 is pencilled on the cover, the likely date is earlier. Psycho, first shown on 13 January 1875, is not included in the programme. However The Indescribable Phenomena Seance is in the programme. According to Jenness’s book on the Egyptian Hall, this was ‘a new feature tonight’ on 28 October 1874.
