[] (OCoLC) Entertainment is a form of activity that holds the attention and interest of an audience or gives pleasure and delight. It can be an idea or a task, but is more likely to be one of the activities or events that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping an audience's attention.

Although people's attention is held by different things, because individuals have. Popular culture (also called mass culture and pop culture) is generally recognized by members of a society as a set of the practices, beliefs, and objects that are dominant or prevalent in a society at a given point in time.

Popular culture also encompasses the activities and feelings produced as a result of interaction with these dominant objects. Heavily influenced in modern times by mass.

Although there were many musical stage entertainments in the s, none of them were called "musicals." The first lasting English-language work of this period was John Gay's The Beggar's Opera (), a ballad opera that reset popular tunes of the day to lyrics that fit a satirical spoof of respectable citizens who are no better than common.

In Elizabeth’s time, Foxe’s Book of Martyrs was an enduring best-seller and Shakespeare, Marlowe and Spenser produced their eternal works.

Philip Astley (8 January – 20 October ) was an English equestrian, circus owner, and inventor, regarded as being the "father of the modern circus".
