Guest speaker Mark Byfield talking to visitors @ Hurstville City Museum & Gallery

In October, record collector and Bee Gees historian Mark Byfield gave an engaging talk on the Bee Gees, in conjunction with our Let Me Enteratain You exhibition. After presenting an overview of the history and significance of the band, Mark discussed the band's time in Australia and some of the songs they wrote during the period. He also talked about the rare and valuable recordings released on the Downunder record label, all of which were recorded at the St Clair Recording Studio in Queens Rd, Hurstville. Mark's passion and knowledge of these subjects made it a wonderful afternoon, with many visitors asking when we would be holding similar events in the future! Some other visitor comments included:

"Excellent"; "Very interesting and informative talk", and "Looking forward to more in the future".

Thanks to Mark for allowing us to add this fascinating event to our 2011 calendar! If you would like to see similar events run at Hurstville City Museum & Gallery in 2012, post your comments here, or send us an email.
