Residents enjoy past being brought back to life

Liverpool’s gruesome criminal past was brought back to life in enthralling style during the latest event at St David’s Church Friday Café in Childwall.

The city’s premier theatrical events company, Lovehistory, who are famed for their performances in the catacombs in St George’s Hall, performed earlier on Friday 7 July for the local community, bringing to life Liverpool’s darker history.

A team of versatile actors in period costume transported locals back in time with infamous stories.

The Friday Café was set up using some of the Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund allocation for local Councillors Jeremy Wolfson, Frank Hont and Liz Parsons and has run successfully for more than three years.

Councillor Wolfson said: “This was another powerful performance by Lovehistory, which went down extremely well with the audience. They were eagerly anticipated following the success of their previous appearance, and did not disappoint.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their efforts, and also to Alan Smith from St George’s Hall who worked with us to secure the booking.”
