Shoreham Follies Programme 1931

1931 Shoreham Follies Revue Programme

St.Mary’s Hall, February 1931

 Photocopies of this programme, a chorus line photo, a ‘Modern Players’ programme of 1938 and a Shoreham Herald newspaper of Friday June 21st 1946 were donated by ex. Shoreham girl Sue Waterfield of 1, Church Park Road, Yealmpton, Devon. Sue is the daughter of James (Jimmy) Barker who features in the newspaper and in the programmes/photo.


James Barker ran the estate agency business of F. H. Barker next to the Crab pub near the station and lived variously at Buckingham Road, Shoreham Beach, Rosslyn Road and Greenways Crescent.


The Shoreham Follies programme includes many well known Shoreham names that appear in other programmes and photos in the Winton Collection on the web site. The immediately recognisable amateur dramatic surnames are Hackett, Nye, Patching, Burfoot and Ball.
