A Poster with a programme of events taking place at the Royal Gardens, Vauxhall. The listing is printed in two columns and would probably have been folded. Events taking place this week include concerts, a Grand Bal Masque, a firework gala, an equestrian performance, tightrope walker, balletic and clown performances and a pictorial representation of the Kremlin at Moscow.
In the 18th and 19th centuries Londoners flocked to the capital's pleasure gardens to enjoy an evening's entertainment outdoors. Vauxhall Gardens was London’s most famous pleasure garden. Opened at Vauxhall in about 1660 under the name ‘New Spring Gardens’, its enclosed grounds and tree-lined walks provided a fashionable place where Londoners of all classes could meet and promenade. It closed in 1859.
