    Default The Rialto Ballrom.

    My wife & I were on holiday & while we were having a coffee we were talking to some other holiday makers, about eight in all.
    We realised that we were all Liverpudlians & had all met our partners at the Rialto in the 60's.

    My Father was heartbroken when they shut down the ballroom it was his life and to see the Rialto go up in flames was so upsetting for us all, it was such a wonderful place and to me as a child a magical place that I will never forget.
    Hello Gina, I was assistant general manager at The Rialto ballroom 1961/62 and fondly remember your father well. We shared many conversations and had quite a lot of laughs.The Hal Graham band had a great sound and your father was a happy person who was always up for a laugh.

    It was a sad day for me when I saw the charred ruins of The Rialto.
    Best regards,
    Ken Black
