Fascinating maritime facts and fantasies
There are so many stories associated with the Mersey and the Seven Seas that it leads to that I have had to create three parts to this talk. Indeed, it is exactly what is ‘says on the tin’; a fascinating selection of maritime facts and fantasies. You will hear and be entertained by glorious stories of Sea Shanties; Maggie May and Liverpool’s ‘sailors’ comforters’; Lord Nelson’s Coffin and ‘the boy who stood on the burning deck’; the Tight Little Island; the Fiji Island Castaway; The Black RockMermaid; The Big Bang on The Mersey; Mother Redcap and the Wallasey Wreckers and Smugglers; the Mariners' Floating Churches; the Scouser and the Spanish Armada; the Sea Monster and The Ghost Ship; and so much more.
These are all a reflection of the maritime traditions of Liverpool, its great River Mersey, and of the Sea, and are a wonderful pot-pourri of nautical narration!
