Travel back in time with historian Norman Jacobs as he unveils the layers of history of Clacton’s Band Pavilion.
This illustrated talk charts the Pavilion’s journey from an open space and bandstand to 3000-seat theatre hosting the world’s top big bands and global showstoppers, to amusement arcade and on to today’s children’s fun park, bowling alley and restaurant.
The story of the Pavilion mirrors Clacton’s own rise, fall, and rise again; once a key attraction in one of Britain’s premier seaside resorts which fell into decline, we now celebrate its revival as part of the town’s regeneration.
Kindly hosted by Armstrongs @ the Pavilion restaurant, Marine Parade East, Clacton-on-Sea CO15 1PS.
Free and open to all, free tea and coffee will be served as part of the event.
Doors open at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.
Places limited so booking essential.
