How did the great British Seaside tradition begin? Was it with George III in Weymouth? Or the Prince Regent in Brighton? Or Queen Victoria, who "Drove down to the beach with my maid and went into a bathing machine where I undressed and bathed in the sea for the first time in my life, I thought it delightful …"? Or the 1841 London to Brighton railway opening up the coast to the East End of London? Or …?
Deirdre's entertaining presentation will reveal all (or, at least, a modest amount) about our love of the seaside, coming right up to date by examining how seaside resorts are continually re-inventing themselves to stay alive in the 21st Century.
A professional actress and producer before becoming Managing Director of a corporate events company, Deirdre's career spans the arts, coaching and mentoring, the charity sector and the corporate world.
