Are There Any Holidaymakers In Tonight? : The beginning of the end of the Seaside Summer Show Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Since the mid-seventies there has been a dramatic decline in the popularity of seaside summer shows.

The halcyon days of big productions playing to packed houses for long seasons have gone.

This nostalgic book looks back at the hey day of the seaside show.

Concentrating mainly on the period from the mid-seventies up until the present day, Peter Phillips' journey starts in Cromer, visits all of our resorts and provides recollections and details of the theatres and the shows that played there. Whether they are big star shows in Blackpool and Great Yarmouth or concert parties in Newquay and Babbacombe they are all featured.

This is not a definitive history, but an enthusiastic celebration of those wonderful seaside summer shows that were such a highlight of the British summer season.
