Lily Morris And Her World: A Zoom presentation on Thursday 26th November

Thurs 26 November – 7.30pm

LILY MORRIS AND HER WORLD

A Talk via Zoom presented by Keith Fawkes and Richard Norman

A reprise of the successful and entertaining illustrated talk previously presented live to the BMHS.

The log in details for this talk will be sent to all BMHS members on email on Thursday 19th November.

Fans of famous music hall performers will be familiar with cockney styled comedienne

Lily Morris (1882-1952) noted for her songs

Why Am I Always The Bridesmaid? and Don’t Have Any More, Missus Moore.

An artiste who toured the halls for over fifty years, made many gramophone records and appeared in several films.

Sadly she fell ill whilst touring in the long-running show Thanks For The Memory and had to withdraw.

She never recovered her full health and died in 1952.

Lily Morris And Her World is an illustrated talk of her career with songs and film clips.

This is the first time that this amazing performer has been researched and presented for public interest.
