Favorite thing: It is a rather amazing fact that you can sensibly claim that the Beatles were first formed in Skegness !
In 1962, Ringo Starr and his group Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, arrived to play the summer season at Skegness after two successful years at Pwllheli. During that summer John Lennon and Paul McCartney visited the Skegness camp and met with Ringo to discuss future possibilities. This eventually led to a request to join their band, conveyed in a phone call to the camp from Lennon on Tuesday 14th August. Despite having two weeks left on his contract, Ringo gave his group three days notice and on 18th August 1962 sat down behind the drum-kit of the Beatles. On that night the Fab Four were born.

Fondest memory: One of the funniest things that I saw when I was in Skegness was in the outdoor swimming pool at Butlins Holiday Camp. We had all been out drinking and then decided to go for a dip in the pool after the bars had shut. Off came most of our clothes and in we dived, we were having a great time until one of the Redcoats arrived back on camp after a night out on the town. He stood at the edge of pool blowing his whistle and shouting "everybody out of the pool" for all his worth. That was until somebody ran up behind him and gave him an almighty shove sending him, his whistle and his brand new suit flying head first into the pool. Needless to say he wasn`t very happy.

Favorite thing: I recently came across a part of a website, that gave a very personal insight into tourism in Skegness during the 1930's.
It somehow seemed a lot more fun than it is nowadays !
