Lytham Pier - The Orchestra

St.Annes Express, July 1913


The So and So's, who scored such a great success during their visit a fortnight ago, are, in consequence of that success, at the Pier Pavilion again this week. It is a capital all-round company, and though the principals are just the same as before, we noticed one or two new artistes. They are very strong dramatically, and there is plenty of variety and no end of humour in their entertainments of over two hours. Their potted pantomimes are screamingly funny. They give shows each afternoon and evening.

Band Concerts.

Dorothea Vincent's Ladies Cremona Orchestra, The Floral Hall, Lytham Pier, 1910.The advent of Miss Dorothea Vincent's Cremona Ladies' Orchestra at the Floral Hall, on Monday, was welcomed by a number of lovers of good music, and from now to the end of the season, the latter will have glorious feasts provided for them. Miss Vincent has brought with her some of the former favourites, as well as fresh talent, and Miss Spooner's vocal contributions have already become immensely popular. Miss Vincent has brought with her some exquisite violin solos, and in the serenade of Pierne, which she gave on Monday night one realised again how remarkably cultured a player she is. It is to be hoped the residents will make it widely known among our visitors that their musical appetites will be most agreeably appeased at the Floral Hall every afternoon and evening.

Next Week's Attraction.

Next week, Mr. Harrison is bringing a first- class vaudeville combination, described as original, funny and refined, and which comprises Miss Sylvia Cavelho and company in a farcical fantasy in one act—"A visitor from Venus." She also appears in another farcical sketch "The husband of Peggy," which she has given in the London Coliseum. Miss May 'Mulvey will present her up-to-date comedy playlet "Winning a wife," and the other items comprise dramatic monologues, operatic selections,  etc.
