Below are some other forms of Victorian pastimes.
Music is another favorite form of recreation, giving great pleasure regardless of whether you're the one playing the instrument or the one singing. Most towns and villages can be found to have a Glee club, bank, music society or choir. If you are interested in the type of music you'll experience during our time, you can find it under our Holiday Ball discussion.
Closely connected to music, dancing became a tradition. Queen Victoria helped influence its popularity by giving evening concerts.
The waltz and polka are quite popular, as are jigs, hornpipes and country dances.
The two oldest theatres, Covent Garden and Drury Lane, present various shows including farces, melodramas, operettas and trained animal acts in addition to drama performances, Harlequinades, rope dancers and Shakespeare to round out the offering.
