Special Notice. The Managers would again call special attention to the desirability of patrons taking up their seats in advance, especially for Saturdays. To leave Tickets at the Box Offices until the last minute causes serious inconvenience and is a great strain upon the officials of the Theatre. With the telephones ringing the whole day through, the Managers cannot possibly be responsible for any mistakes which might occur regarding seats, unless Tickets are secured before the evening. If patrons will kindly call or send for their seats in advance, it would reduce the pressure at night, and add to the convenience and comfort of all. The Assembly Rooms, New Brighton, can be let for Cinderellas, Balls, Whist Drives, Dramatic Performances, Concerts, Meetings, Rehersals, Receptions, etc., etc. "Absolutely the most beautiful commodious and convenient rooms in the whole of the Wirral Peninsula. The best dancing floor. Splendid stage." – Vide Press. For terms and particulars apply to the Managers. Telephone 327 and 739 Liseard. The "Sports" Suits and Jackets the ideal rig for golf and holiday wear. Ready to wear or to measure at Ford's 51, Lord Street, Liverpool.
