The Queens Bars In Cleveleys - a Memory of Blackpool.
I was a part of a double cabaret act in the 60's. My then husband and I were Ricky and Jackie Day...we both sang and played guitars. We were resident at the Queens Bars in Cleveleys for summer seasons and my son James was Born at Glenroyd Hospital in Blackpool in 1964.
Peter Blythe was a budding Medical Hypnotist... hypnotised me to have "painless Childbirth" (It didnt Work folks!) But he and his wife Maxine were good friends of ours...and I am afraid I pretended it did, so as not to upset them!
The queens Bars put on a very popular cabaret show...our best friends in those days were JIMMY & RITA Rose. Jimmy did a country and Western guitar vocal act...how I would love to know what happened to them after we lost touch when we moved on (as acts did in those days), and they bought a bungalow to settle in Cleveleys.
Does anyone remember any of these people or places?
