It is not just people who have written the history of Liverpool and its region, the animals have more than played their part too. In fact, there are so many stories to tell that there are two, separate parts to this talk, so you choose which you would like to hear. Both, are celebrations of those creatures - some more legendary than others, but most very real indeed.
Included in these tales you might hear about the Earl and the Pussycat; the 'Four-Legged Friend' in the Adelphi Hotel; the possible origins of the Cheshire Cat; the tragic and brutal death of Rajah the elephant; The Gorilla with the Lipstick; the High-Diving Horses; the origins of the Liver Bird; Jet of Iada, the heroic rescue dog; the Dinosaurs of Merseyside; the Wild Tigers of Tranmere; Lord Derby's Mouse; Liverpool's own 'King Kong'; the Mummified Cats; the Tranmere Tigers; the Superlambanana; and perhaps the greatest race horse of all time, Red Rum: Plus much, much more.
Entertaining, funny, and very, very interesting ~ these are talks for audiences of all ages.
