Hackney Empire, E8 1EJ

A refurbished historic and gorgeous music hall designed by Frank Matcham, with a full programme of theatre and comedy, close by Hackney Central Station.

Chaplin and Stan Laurel played here, as well as Marie Lloyd and no doubt Little Tich & His Big Boots and Wilson, Keppel & Betty with their sand dance in Arab costume.

It also has a cafe called the Empire Cafe (formerly the Marie Lloyd Bar).
