Will it be a new record for the Liverpool F.C. Theatrical Football Gala?


February 10, 1899
Should fine weather prevail on Thursday next it is expected that the attendance at the Liverpool Theatrical Football Gala on the grounds of the Liverpool Football Club, Anfield, in aid of the Stanley, the Consumption and Bootle Hospitals, as well as other deserving charities, will pass previous records.

Attractions of an unusually interesting character will form the programme, and the public are sure to be satisfied with the amusements provided. At the meeting of the general council yesterday, Councillor William Houlding in the chair, most gratifying reports were presented by the sub-committees. So far as the exhibition of dolls, dressed by lady artistes, is concerned, it is very successful, the attendance in the exhibition-room at Messrs. Brown, Barnes, and Bell’s local studios, Bold-street, having exceeded the committees expectations.

To-day (Saturday) it is believed that the number of visitors will be larger than on the two preceding days, as the display is being favourably spoken of by the ladies who have inspected the various exhibits.
