Sociable History!

Published:

Members and friends of BOST recently enjoyed a social evening at Alexander Hall, at which we were thoroughly entertained by Mr. Frank Carlyle. The famous local historian is a well-renowned specialist in the history of Liverpool. With his infectious Liverpudlian humour, he spoke to an enraptured audience and had us eating out of his hands! We laughed and learned with equal pleasure, and the evening flew by.

After the official end of Frank’s Talk, no one was in a hurry to leave, and Frank found time to share his enthusiasm for all things Liverpudlian with groups and individuals who approached him to ask questions or to share their own experiences.

All in all, it was a friendly, informal and informative evening.

Many thanks to Frank, seen here with Sybil Hancock the event organiser, photographed by multi-talented member Les Hampson, last seen as the Priest marrying Sir Percy Blakeney to Marguerite St Juste in ”The Scarlet Pimpernel” at the Empire last May!
