We have done it - today was Prom-Prom's first day of the 2020 summer season, as Uncle Tacko's Flea Circus and Professor Gayton's Punch & Judy, together with Sergeant Spike, performed on Teignmouth seafront. We think that we are one of the first outdoors seaside live performance events to take place in the UK: as you can see from the picture, we took social-distancing precautions with mats and benches, all disinfected between shows. Come along and see us there, every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the summer holidays (weather permitting).
NEWSFLASH! From August 11th, we shall be performing every Tuesday on Exmouth seafront on the Beach Gardens.
Come along and support live entertainment, if you can!

It's summer! It's time for fun! It's time for Prom-Prom to get out and about with shows to delight audiences in South Devon after the dark, dreary days of lock-down! As pioneers of accessible, outdoors, seaside entertainments, Prom-Prom are one of the first companies in the UK to start presenting live shows to audiences at the seaside!
Come and see 'Uncle Tacko's Flea Circus', 'Professor Gayton's Grand Punch & Judy' and special guest artists on Teignmouth seafront. We shall also be showing our new activities - 'The Teignmouth Lighthouse Hoopla', 'Codswallop' (Splat-the-Rat, but with fish) and the 'Pierrot Peep-board' (see attached picture). You can find us between the lighthouse and the skate-park between 11AM and 4PM every Wednesday and Thursday throughout August and the first week of September (weather permitting). What more could you want from your staycation, or as a way of enjoying your local seafront?!
We shall be performing in a Covid-safe way, but we ask everyone to be responsible for assessing the proximity of people who are not in their social bubble and to stay at home if they have any symptoms of the virus. For seating, we shall provide vinyl mats and varnished benches (including the new 'Royal Bench') for family groups or social bubbles of up to 5 - these will all be disinfected between shows.
These performances have been made possible through the generosity of Teignmouth Town Council and our Crowdfunders, as well as support from Teignbridge District Council...our thanks go to all of them.
Please come along and do tell your friends - we shall have drop- coin boxes and a new 'Tap & Pay' machine for contactless payments - please be generous, so that we can continue working into the future. It'll be great to see you there and look-out for new exciting announcements from us over the next week or so!

Here’s a nice little seaside montage from Professor Glynn Edwards, crested as part of a project we did together last year and featuring some nice colourised postcards from my archives - www.seasidefollies.co.uk ... See MoreSee Less

The 'Royal Bench' with the Crowdfunders' names burned-in...
Undaunted by the pandemic, Prom-Prom has managed to persuade Teignmouth Town Council & Teignbridge District Council to maintain their support for 2 days of performance on Teignmouth seafront a week throughout the August and the 1st week of September, on Wednesdays and Thursdays...I hope to see some of you there!

Your generous support has enabled us to buy some wipe-down mats and benches (see the attached video), as well as investing in a tap-and-pay Izettle machine and a box that goes "Ping!" when you drop a coin in - hence no need for contact when exchanging money. We are still hoping that the flag & bunting workshops may take place, but it depends a little on formal agreements to direct workshops with the community.

Please stay in touch with us and I shall try and give more updates over the summer.

With best wishes,

Tony

AKA Uncle Tacko!
