AN appeal has gone out for people’s memories of Blackburn’s King George’s Hall.

The best will feature in a special retrospective project showcasing 100 years of the entertainment venue.

And they could win 25 pairs of tickets to KGH’s centenary celebration party next Thursday, hosted by BBC weatherman Owain Wyn Evans, by posting on social media.

Already hundreds of people shared their memories of attending concerts and events at the hall but Blackburn with Darwen Council still wants more.

World-famous acts to grace its stage include The Beatles, David Bowie, Queen, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Blondie, The Jam, The Clash, Bryan Adams, Take That, Shirley Bassey, Billy Connolly, the Stereophonics, Little Richard, and the Halle Orchestra.

Thursday’s red carpet party night marking the opening of the historic hall exactly 100 years before will feature music played throughout the decades, a classical performance, comedy and chat.

People can win free tickets to attend by logging onto the council’s Facebook page and commenting on, liking and sharing the post.

They are asked to post their fondest memory associated with King George's Hall and submit any footage or pictures they have related to it or performances there.

These could be incorporated in a retrospective showcase project on the 100 years of its history being prepared by the council.

Its foundation stone was laid by King George V in 1913 but the First World War intervened and it finally opened in 1921.

The evening after the party, Manchester’s Hallé orchestra will perform the same programme in Blackburn’s King George’s Hall as it did on the venue’s opening night.
