This threatening looking sky passed us by without dumping on us and we got to Skeg just in time to get a great meal before the restaurant, The Windsor, closed. if you're ever in Skegness you can trust this restaurant for excellent food and good service at reasonable prices - and they do a wicked lemon meringue pie. Ask me how I know! Yum!!!! When we came out of the restaurant the illuminations were lit up, luckily they were due to finish at the end of half term but were still on.
This is the renowned Clock Tower at Skeggy.These girls were having a great time - check out the platform shoes!
We had time for a bit of a stroll to walk our tea off and then presented ourselves at the theatre in time for the start at 7.30. I have never seen The Searchers live before but they were excellent. Very friendly and chatty with the audience. They are just at the start of a very punishing tour running into next year. I think I sang myself hoarse! And there was lots of arm waving and clapping along! Great fun and good for the endorphins. We even managed a jig at the end (pity the poor people behind who didn't stand up. Needless to say I'm a bit stiff today but it was worth it! I must learn to whistle loudly properly, it seems much easier than shouting at the top of your voice and going "Whoo whoo ooh" *LOL* They played a very varied programme with all their hits, Needles and Pins, Everytime that you walk in the Room, Sweets for my Sweet, and also quite a few covers. It was nearly my undoing tho when they sang "You'll never Walk Alone". It doesn't have any soccer connotations for me but it is a very special song and brings back memories I was surprised at the end as they said they would come out to the foyer and sign CDs and such. As you may expect there was quite a crush but eventually (cos we waited, sad or what?) My friend G and I got to the front of the queue, in fact we were the end of the queue, and did the groupie thing :o))and,yes, we got their autographs too! So, if they turn up at a theatre near you and you fancy a great night out with a bit of bopping and lots of singing along give it a whirl. They rock!
