​After visiting the Imperial Hotel this week and discovering its amazing interiors not to mention the number of notable visitors over the years, I shall be returning to photograph some of the participants of the #retiredperformers project. 

With great delight, I have met an ex Roly Poly this week, a retired entertainments journalist, a children's performer whose great-grandmother was a circus dancer and spent quite a bit of time buying vintage Blackpool postcards which I hope to incorporate into the process. 

Please if you feel you have your own story re: Performance or performing prior to the 1970's in Blackpool do get in touch.
