Description

Since the seaside began attracting visitors in the 18th century it has developed a range of unique building types that continue to give resorts a special sense of place. In this lecture Dr Kathryn Ferry explores the evolution of accommodation and entertainment buildings, alongside smaller structures such as promenade shelters and beach huts. Discussing the trends that defined the Victorian and inter-war eras she sets examples from the Isle of Man in the wider context of resorts competing with each other around the British coast.

Doors from 6.30pm.
