Madeleine Bunting in conversation with Professor Vanessa Toulmin
Tuesday 17 October 2023, 19:00 at Millennium Gallery
A vivid, illustrated, journey around England’s great seaside resorts exploring their history, landscapes, identity and contemporary plight. England’s seaside is made up of a striking variety of coastlines including cliffs, coves, pebbled shore, wide sandy beaches, salt marshes and estuaries. Madeleine Bunting travelled clockwise around England from Scarborough to Blackpool, taking in some 40 resorts, to understand the enduring appeal of seaside towns and what has happened to the golden sands, cold seas and donkey rides of childhood memory.
