Hidden Biographies. Ned Williams
Seven well-known midlands entertainers from the past who were not who they seemed. This talk unveils seven biographies of local people who were involved in “show business”, including the man who built the Dudley Hippodrome, the man who opened the Black Country’s first cinema, the girl from Wolverhampton who became a famous aerial circus star, and Dudley’s greatest actress! It’s a tale of family history research complicated by the fact that all seven people used 'false' names, i.e. stage names or pen names. They weren't quite who they said they were!
