Admission All Classes presents our tribute to the shows that used to be major
part of seaside entertainments, the end of the pier entertainments on
Blackpool’s historic Grade II listed North Pier.
The North Pier, designed by
Eugenius Birch itself was first opened in 1863 and acts became a prominent part
of the attractions both inside the theatre and the outside what is now known as
the sun lounge. One of the most popular acts that performed on the piers was
of course the pierrot troupes. Although not commonly associated with the North
Pier, they did perform summer shows on the South and Central Piers. Alongside
the concert party performers, the pierrot troupe were part of the rich
tapestry of seaside entertainers.
This Spring Bank holiday weekend will be a
unique opportunity to once again applaud as the Pierroters and other walkabout
acts performed by Sheffield and Blackpool students take you down memory way in
a modern contemporary fashion but fun for all the family.
"Pierrotters: pointless perfection"
"Fabulous well organised events. we certainly need to continue to see more of these events here"
"Excellent - Entertainment as it should be"
"Very Entertaining, good for all the family"
