B.B.C. DID NOT KNOW ABOUT OUR INDOOR CIRCUS
Last week’s Radio Times, publishes an apology to the Winter Gardens! ‘Circus management, Skegness.
When the big Yarmouth night was broadcast a fortnight ago, the Radio Times mentioned that the Norfolk resort and Blackpool were the only seaside resorts! which boasted an indoor circus, and they made the “amende honorable” -in the next issue in the following terms:
“Writing about the indoor cirrus at Great Yarmouth, we said that this was an attraction `boasted, we believe, by no other seaside town except Blackpool.’ The ‘we believe’ was an afterthought; we put it in because we remembered that these negative, statements are almost invariably disproved. Sure enough, we now learn that Skegness, too has an indoor circus, and has had for years.
