Those with long memories may recall that the Pavilions is built on the site of a former railway station. “Plymouth Millbay” Station stood opposite the Duke of Cornwall Hotel, and was the original terminus for the city. It opened is 1849 and the last passenger train departed in 1941.
This weekend, we have not 1, but 5 trains back at Plymouth Millbay station, as children’s show Thomas and Friends takes to the stage. They’re hefty things as well – so much so that we’ve had to get the Pavilions stage especially re-enforced to handle the weight. I hope we’ve got the calculations right!
Oh, and next time you are near the front entrance of the Pavilions, look out for 2 granite posts near
He will give you the inside track on the day to day goings-on in the arena and the office: he’ll share with you what it takes to make the shows happen, why certain acts come (and don’t come) to Plymouth, and what they get up to while they’re here!
If you have any questions or comments to put to Gavin, please feel free. However, two rules of the blog are:
- please don’t use it to ask for certain shows to come to Plymouth
- please don’t use it to make a complaint about Plymouth Pavilions
Whilst we welcome both those things, they would detract from the main purpose of the blog. Your feedback in those areas is welcome via firstname.lastname@example.org
