The first Rose Queen Festivals from the 1960s were recorded on cine film by local resident, Mr Emerson. These precious films have been converted to DVD with a commentary added by Jen Warburton and will be shown at the next meeting of Thelwall History Group on Wednesday 12 January at Grappenhall & Thelwall Royal British Legion. Doors open 7pm for 7.30pm start.
Also on display will be the banners prepared for Thelwall Junior School's 60th anniversary celebrations last November - a timeline from Victorian education in Thelwall and the schools on Gig Lane to the official opening of the Thelwall New Road building in 1961 on to the present day.
A real ‘60s evening!
