Programme, Liverpool Welsh Choral Union



This programme was published for the Liverpool Welsh Choral Union's performances at the Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool for the season 1988/89. In the 19th and early 20th centuries Liverpool was home to a large Welsh community whose influence and legacy remain in the city today. The community, which numbered around 70,000 by the end of the 1800s, built over 90 places of worship. Many of Liverpool’s street names also reflect the Welsh people that built them with names such as Rhiwlas Street and Madryn Street, birthplace of The Beatle’s drummer Ringo Starr.
