Saturday 9 April – Sunday 4 September 2011 at the Time and Tide Museum, Blackfriars Road, Great Yarmouth
Nothing captures the spirit of the great British seaside holiday quite like the colourful postcards produced by Bamforth and Co between the 1950s and 1970s.
Young holiday makers might sneak a peek at the mischievous illustrations, whilst adults sniggered at the double entendres. These popular cards were an entertaining way of sending greetings back home – with a bit of titillation thrown in.
The exhibition brings together a wonderful selection of cards, original drawings, sketches and paintings. And a film goes behind the scenes to reveal the artists and illustrators at work in the studio.
To add a local flavour, you can also see a display of postcards from Great Yarmouth. Wish You Were Here is a nostalgic reminder of the town’s heyday as a holiday resort.
A touring exhibition from Kirklees Community History Service.

Delicious Icecream, by Jane Hall
No trip to the seaside would be complete without a 99, or Knickerbocker glory, and having lived by the seaside for most of her life, it is no surprise that Norfolk-based artist, Jane Hall, makes ice cream a central theme in her work. She grew up in Clacton before moving to Great Yarmouth as a teenager – both traditional British seaside resorts – and now just lives just a two-minute walk from Great Yarmouth’s busy seafront, with its numerous ice cream sellers and beach-side cafes.
“I first started taking an interest in ice creams while planning my first major solo show last year,” Jane explains.
“I want to capture the fun of the seaside, painting popular culture, while at the same time evoking the nostalgia we all feel for the British seaside holiday. For me ice creams are a symbol of the British holiday and of the seduction of adverts, which is a key theme in my work. All the ice creams I paint I have eaten and enjoyed; except the plastic ones”.
Jane will also be exhibiting at the Fisher gallery in Bungay for the month of July and in Great Yarmouth library. 19th September -1st October. www.jane-hall.co.uk
