Showtown invites you to DISCOVER: Neil Roberts presents – The End of the End of the Pier Show

 Saturday 30th July, 2pm- 3pm

The Joe Longthorne MBE Museum, North Pier, Blackpool

Award winning magician, Neil Roberts presents an insight into the history of British seaside entertainment, from the early days of the Pierrot shows to the big-name TV star spectaculars.

How and when did they start? Why and when did they finish? And what exactly is the definition of an “end of the pier show”? All these and other questions are asked (and some may be answered!).

This event will be a nostalgic look back at an era that has all but disappeared, and an optimistic look to the future.

Everyone is welcome, no need to book – just come along! FREE admission!

PS: The train on North Pier is due to be running at a cost of £1 each way.
