Explain any five sources of entertainment for common people of London in the nineteenth century.
- THE concept of ‘London Season’ was an annual feature for the wealthy Britishers. Several cultural events such as the opera, the theater and classical music performance were organised for an elite group of 300-400 families in the late eighteenth century.
- Meanwhile the working class met in pubs to have drinks, exchange news or to discuss politics.
- In the 19th century some libraries, art gallaries and museums were established to provide people with a sense of history and encourage them to take pride in the achievements of the British. To encourage people to visit the above mentioned places the entry fee was waived.
