Event description

Description

A talk by Ian Gledhill giving a lighthearted look at seaside entertainment over the years, from bathing machines to end of the pier shows. English seaside towns began to be popular with the gentry in the 18th Century with the fashion for sea bathing, and soon developed into fashionable resorts to rival traditional spa towns like Bath and Harrogate. On the way they acquired many traditions of their own, including 'What the Butler Saw' machines and the dreaded seaside landlady!
