Viv Gardner’s essay begins with a discussion of ‘scuttling’ incidents in Manchester in the 1890s, originating in music hall and theatre venues and spilling onto the streets, and the debates in the press about these. This leads her into a study of the complex relationship of performance, performance sites and urban spectatorship in Manchester in the period, with a particular focus on theatre architecture and urban topography. The essay considers the supposed ‘rapprochement of polite and popular culture’, and offers a detailed study of the programmes and audiences at a variety of venues.
