Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Mention is made of Mr. Frank Weston's benefit. H. E. Cleveland, Fred Bulmer and other professional and business friends presented a cheque of around ?50 was presented to the manager 'whose modesty was overcome by his gratitude, and whose little mention of thanks was heartily received'. Rumour has it that this may be his last benefit at the Tivoli, as he is likely to be moving on.
