Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Tivoli Theatre of Varieties has not offered its patrons a more brilliant or more varied entertainment than that which has attracted such large audiences to the spacious and comfortable hall in Hurst Street this week'. Among the acts - Bella and Bijou with two new sketches 'After the Divorce' and 'James the Flunky'; the three sisters Silcott with their charming coon song; and the four cyclists who gyrate inside a tea-cup track with their hair-raising performance.
