We had a lovely time by the side of the silvery sea in Llandudno this September! As part of a heritage lottery funded project, in collaboration with Venue Cymru, Promenade Promotions eated a new pierrot troupe in honour of Will Catlin, the self-styled 'King of Pierrots', who toured pierrots throughout the country from 1894 until he died in 1953: the new troupe is called "The New Follies", - featuring Uncle Tacko!, Mr Macko, Zampanella, Bunny & 'Boyo'. We were joined for a weekend of frivolities by our North Wales youth troupe - "The Jollies". There is also the largest exhibition about pierrots & concert parties ever to have been shown in Britain, which is in the foyers of Venue Cymru until January. The photographs here were all taken by Paul Sampson, but you can see many more, as well as lots of other oral histories, films and interactions on our specially-created website: www.seasidefollies.co.uk. It was a grand time and we hope to be back there again for more seaside silliness in the coming year. A huge thank you to all involved! ... See MoreSee Less
