Those marvellous inventors in music and purveyors of mirth, Allcock and Brown, are a handsome Victorian music hall duo with more than a lace handkerchief up their sleeves.

Comic ditties, monologues and sing-alongs of days past are performed on piano accordion (Mike Ruff) and Anglo concertina (Chris Sadler).

Allcock & Brown broaden their horizons

Not just for Victorian music halls any more - the 1940's are also in their back pocket!


Allcock & Brown have a splendid 1940's repertoire and can help you celebrate VE Day or any other 40's themed event.
