Sound effects, special lighting, projections and poetry along with 6 actors and special guests in period costume will create a unique interactive experience taking in the court room, catacombs and basement galleries of St Georges Hall. Echoes of the First World War is part of the Hall’s own programme of events which take place throughout this centenary anniversary year of the start of the Great War in 1914. Liverpool Historian Frank Carlyle announced, “Being an historian and a specialist of WW1, I've been asked to present a different slant about Merseyside soldiers and the impact the War had upon them. Besides narration, I will cover some of the famous WW1 soldier poets and their poetry. The event will have local actors who will depict the tragic scenes in costumes and special effects will provide the audience with a dramatic and realistic insight. There's no better venue than St. George's Hall to hold this spectacular event commemorating WW1, especially with the Cenotaph being on the Plateau." Frank Carlyle is creating the tours with Liverpool actor/director Jake Abraham and in collaboration with the St George’s Hall management.
