This free talk is held in conjunction with the National Piers Society and Bournemouth University as part of their Festival of Learning event. This session will chart the development of British seaside pleasure piers: from their beginnings as humble landing stages through to the ‘golden age’ of pier building. We’ll also be looking at the current rejuvenation of piers, like Bournemouth, and how they are embracing the future. Come along and gain a unique insight into the past, present and future of piers, share your own memories of seaside piers, and let us know your hopes for their future.
