l have been informed by a long standing Camper that it is called the Prince's Ballroom NOT the Princess,l have always in my 6 seasons known it as the Princess ballroom but l stand to be corrected Maybe my Good friend of long standing Alex(Joker) knows??)
l have added a photo of Skegness 1962 in the Ballroom on the stage doing a Sing-a--long in those days l might add it was a single story building in my days
l'm in front of the mirror at the back behind the two female Redcoats also in the photo Roger Roberts, Carole (Radio Butlins),Joe Boyle, Ken Wood (holding the song sheet),Bob Daley,Val
