A song and dance tribute to Birkenhead's Argyle Theatre will be staged at Heswall Hall later this month.

Performed by Heswall Musical Society, The Argyle Remembered - from Thursday, June 30 June to Saturday, July 2 - tells the story of the popular and much-missed Argyle Theatre.

Opened in 1868 as a music hall and bombed during the Second World War in September 1940, the theatre once stood were the House of Frazer (formerly Beatties) car park is now situated.

Silent screen comedy legend Charlie Chaplin along with fellow funnymen George Formby, Max Miller, Marie Lloyd, Rob Wilton, Flannagan and Allen and Old Mother Riley walked to the stage door down the alley, which is now adjacent to the former Beatties car-park, and played to cheering Birkenhead audiences.

Some of these acts will be portrayed in the show.

The show was researched and written by Joan Clement and is produced by Phil Lyne with Greg Williams as musical director.

Looking ahead to the performances Phil tells the Globe: "All the cast have worked hard during the last few months to put this show together.

"I'm sure you will know most of the Old Time Music Hall songs that are being performed in this show they include Shine on Harvest Moon, You Made Me Love You and Let's All Go Down The Strand plus many more".

Performances of The Argyle Remembered are at Heswall Hall on Thursday, June 30 and Friday, July 1 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee on July 2 at 2.30pm. Tickets are £10 and £8 concessions and from 0151 648 3457.

So come along and join them and "Let's All Go To The Music Hall".
