hi everyone

you are all getting the story wrong about lady mabel. i go to ecclesfield school now and i will tell you the story.

well what happened was lady mabel was doing a play of romeo and Juliette

and when she came to performing you know at the end she stabs herself well it came to that part and someone had swapped the fake knife for a real one so that she would actually kill herself and the production was in the staff room at our school and the lady Mabel hall is just named after her to remember the death of someone who was loved at our school. If you go to the school grounds and go to lady Mabel hall then you will see a plate on the wall in remembrance off her so there you go theres the story !

Thanks to Nigel who has given the only sensible contribution to this subject. The rest can be ignored .

Thanks to AngieB. Elizabeth Gale was in my class and we were very close friends as she was a superb singer and me a modest pianist ! The head at the time was Mr Jennings who as a good intellectual socialist was a great opera fan and supporter of Elizabeth. Just another example of the appeal of EGS. She was no brainbox, so what ?
