This Summer, we selected seven lucky young performing trainees from a diverse background and created The Sunshine Follies! Alongside a host of veteran outdoor/seaside performers, they were trained in the art of barking, as well various other essential skills. You may have even seen them on the Teignmouth seafront, at the RAMM amphitheatre or on Exeter Quayside! Watch the video to learn more and see the trainees in action!A massive thanks to Arts Council England and all our funders, the local authorities and arts organisations, the trainees and of course – our audiences. See you next year! ... See MoreSee Less

40 Years a Showman...So, another hectic summer season finally came to an end this weekend: Prom-Prom has delivered more than 30 dates over the recent summer holidays, we have employed more than 25 professional artists and reached tens of thousands of live audience members, plus millions more through the broadcast media. We have had support from public, private and voluntary sector organisations and provided countless smiles throughout the summer.Thank you to everyone who has worked and played so hard with us this year and to everyone who came along and supported us. We hope to see you again next season, when we shall do it all again!This has been my 40th year providing entertainment on the promenades and streets of Britain and although I sometimes get weary these days, it has been a delight to spend my time with such a wonderful goup of people and to be a part of an industry that is so joyful, light-footed and accessible. There is nothing finer than to earn a living spending the day performing to thousands on the seafront and then watching the sun sink over the horizon, with an ice cream in my hand - thinking of doing it all over again tomorrow!

As our traineeship draws to a close, we reflect on the training and rehearsal process. While only a few week ago, our trainees have come so far that it seems longer! We will miss all of them and wish them well in their performance careers!#outdoorarts #familyfun #covidsafe #training #artscouncilengland #circusskills #seasideentertainment ... See MoreSee Less
