Seaside Lemmings

Norman Jacobs with Filbert, Clown Bertram's 'dummy'

Resorting to the Coast partnered with The Grand Theatre of Lemmings who performed their Seaside Frolics show in August 2017.

The entertainment programme showcased the history of seaside entertainment through street theatre, installations, theatrical re-enactment and the sharing of memories.

One very special entertainer was featured in the show – the fascinating Clown Bertram, our local seaside hero.  He was the most popular and best-loved performer ever to appear in Clacton-on-Sea and spent eighteen seasons from 1922 to 1939 entertaining both adults and children alike in packed houses.

The Grand Theatre of Lemmings will return with a new tour next August.  We will keep you posted!
