On the 10th and 11th July, Heswall Musical Society is staging a production called The Argyle Remembered, about the Argyle Theatre in Birkenhead. The Argyle opened in 1868 and lasted until 1940 when it was bombed and never reopened. The show pays tribute to artistes as Vesta Tilley, Robb Wilton, Arthur (‘Old Mother Riley’) Lucan, Harry Lauder and Flanagan and Allen plus many more stars of the music hall era. A master of ceremonies will tell the story of the theatre from the very beginning to its sad end and will feature songs such as Shine On Harvest Moon, You Made Me Love You and Underneath The Arches. The Argyle Remembered was written by Joan Clement and directed by Phil Lyne.
