Dancing at the Gaumont
We’ve had an e-mail from BARBARA WHITE, now of New Zealand, who writes: “I used to dance every week at the Gaumont picture theatre. They ran a weekly dance for young teens and it was terrific and very well supported.
“The dance school I attended was Madge Bentley’s and we did a cabaret-style interval every week. It was no mean feat. There must have been a restaurant in there as we used to change in the kitchen.
“The management paid for us to dance at the Gaumont in Morecambe. It was totally sold out.”
