Take Three Shops

Take Three Shops: Boothroyds, Broadbents and Bobb

An online talk by Jill Newsham, University of Central Lancashire

Southport was once famous for its shopping and department stores. Over the years it hosted the likes of Broadbents & Boothroyds, Marhsall & Snellgrove, Beales, Debenhams, Bobbys & Co., BHS and others. In this talk Jill Newsham will be taking a look back at some of these stores that are now sadly long gone.

These online talks are free, however booking is required before 11am on the morning of the talk. The talks will be presented using Zoom. You will receive an email invitation to join a Zoom meeting just after 11am on the morning of the talk.

Donations to The Atkinson Development Trust are welcomed and can be made when you book your ticket.

A recording of the talk will be available to watch online one week after the first presentation.
