To the Editor. Sir, — Wilj you kindly allow mo space to call attention to the following facts During the pcformance given by amateurs in the Town Hall on Boxing night, both performers and the audience in the body of the hall were subjected to great annoyance from the audience in the gallery. The constant interruptions that were given to those who were exerting themselves to interest and amuse were simply disgraceful. Such conduct would not be tolerated in any minor theatre in London. There are a class of people who attend places of Amusement with the express purpose of causing all the annoyance they can. Such people should be dealt with as they deserve—ejected by proper authority. Amateurs may have faults and failings, which they will no doubt try and improve, with the hope that the frequenters of the gallery will do the same, otherwise all concerned will be bettor without thelatters’ presence.—l am, &c,. One who was Present.
