The Bronze Billy Fury statue moved from the courtyard of the Museum of Liverpool Life to it’s permanent position beside the Piermaster’s House.
On the day of the Statue move, Mags Cummings took Jean and Albert to watch the move having only found out about it that morning. She rushed from Poynton to Jean’s then to Albie’s and we found Billy’s Statue hanging from the low loader. It was very interesting and drew a small crowd.
The woman in the check coat is Janet Dugdale, Director of Museums at National Museums Liverpool. She is responsible for the collections and curatorial teams of the museums and other buildings on the waterfront at the Canning Graving Docks.
Mags picked up some roses on the way so Jean could be the first to put something on the new plinth. What A Lovely Lady.
We hope you enjoy this Billy Fury Bronze statue history.
Jean and Albie Wycherely were guests at the press launch of the DVD “Billy Fury – His Wondrous Story”, held in London on 25th June 2007. There were many famous faces amongst the people present, some of whom feature on the DVD.
AWARD FOR IN EXCESS OF 200,000 COMBINED SALES OF ‘BILLY FURY HIS WONDROUS STORY’ CD AND DVD.
Decca records made a surprise presentation to Jean and Albie towards the end of the proceedings – a gold disc, recognising the incredible sales of Billy Fury records. The wording on the plaque reads “Presented to Jean and Albie Wycherley in recognition of Billy Fury’s outstanding sales. DECCA.” Billy is Decca Records most successful singles artist, even outselling the Rolling Stones. What a pity that the man himself couldn’t be there to receive it for this wonderful achievement.
