Seaside and spa entertainment for 200 years and more has centred around easy-to-listen-to melodies and toe-tapping rhythms, and the PCO’s 11th such concert programme will highlight and stir-up the warm, nostalgic memories of by-gone holidays of past generations. Watch out for the xylophone, harp and clarinet solos with the well-known ‘Victorian Kitchen Garden’ of television fame!
