The Argus: fringe_2011_logo_red_thumbA Musical Hostriy of 24 George Street does exactly what it says on the tin.

Over the course of an evening – and a three-course dinner – audience members are taken on a musical journey through time.

The building’s story is told simply through song, from 1795 when the house was built, through to the present day.

Led by Jane Bom-Bane, the performers recount the stories of the many families who have lived there over the years, from musical instrument maker William Baker in the 1830s to bicycle dealer Mr Moreman in the 1950s.

The well-researched performance provides an evening of surprises, wit and charm. The six singers have beautiful voices and are accompanied by the excellent Nick Pynn on a variety of musical instruments.

The beauty of Bom-Bane’s is the simplicity and ease of everything. Performers instantly slip into being waitresses during the meal; nothing is too much trouble.

With good food, great entertainment and a real homely feel, Jane Bom-Bane and her team are adding their own special touch to the history of this house.
