my two teenage boys used to go to the nursery that was there, on the second floor.!!

What memories! Concerts, recitals, Speech Days. I found it so interesting that the layout of the hall was almost exactly the same as the New Rooms in Bristol - The Wesleys' first meeting hall - and Westminster central Hall

I remember being in the Girl Guides,there, and having "Coffee mornings" where we served coffee with morning coffee biscuits, to the shoppers - and went to all the local shops and market stalls with the stuff!! It was in the late 50's. Mrs. Tilly Challinor was our captain.

We had our Convent prize giving there one year

It looks very different round the back Dave! Had grass growing up at the top. Saw a politician-think it was Harold Macmillan--at a pre-elction meeting, in the 50`s, in there.

Once sang here with H.A.Grammar School choir in the 60's.Cant remember why for the life of me,but it was impressive at the time.My only other public rendition was under Wallgate bridge in a police van,singing Danny Boy,one of the officers I was with turned on the public address system and left me wondering why folk were waving at me.I was a 17 yr old cadet at the time.Joe and John were the culprits.

My Mum and Dad were married there as were my grandparents! My brother and I were christened there circa 1960 and I'm sure lots of my cousins too!Three years ago on a visit to Wigan from Australia at Christmas time we attended the New Year's Day service at the newer version of Queen's Hall.
