Dennis Taylor - President of the Society

Please take time to look around at all the different aspects of the Society - you may become interested enough to join. You will even find an application form available for your use. The official website was launched in May 1997 and since then we have recruited over 40% of our new members via the Internet, not only from the UK but from around the world. It never surprises me now when I see another new member listed in our data files who has found us and joined the Society in this way.

I suppose George Formby would be absolutely amazed to know that his name was being beamed around the World again and I am sure that his wife, Beryl who was responsible for George's success would be even more amazed.

Currently we have approximately 1,000 members, have four conventions a year in the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. We have 13 branches of the Society in the UK and branches in Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands. We are a truly international Society with members in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and most of the European countries.

This is my seventh year of office as President of the George Formby Society and I am supported by a strong Executive Committee who are determined to carry out the main objective of the Society into the next Century.

That is :- ‘To preserve and perpetuate the Music and Memory of that great entertainer, George Formby OBE’
