Whitchurch Town Hall Saturday Night Dances - a Memory of Whitchurch.

I remember attending the dances in the Old Town Hall. The promoters use to bus people in from all the local towns - Wem, Ellesmere, Malpas, Nantwich and Wrexham. I lived in Whitchurch and had an older friend who worked on the local paper, The Whitchurch Herald, and when the Beatles played[1963/64?] one of them stayed at his house on Wrexham Road.
There were no disco so you went to dance and meet the opposite sex.
Monday mornings in school all the girls would be discussing Saturday night and usually the boys they had met from Wem Grammar School. They didn't have a High School in Wem so all the girls attended Whitchurch High School which amalgamated with the Whitchurch Grammar School in 1963.
