The year is 1971 and Great Yarmouth, along with all parts of the United Kingdom, must get to grips with decimal currency, widely known as "the new money". Some, more than others will find the transition difficult, but none more so that Maud's sister, Enid in her gift shop. Don Stevens and Rita Ricer pull together another line-up of variety artistes to headline The Golden Sands Theatre for a twice nightly summer season show but with the added pressure of a small theatre in crisis at the neighbouring Brokencliff-on-Sea, that it seems only Rita can help to save. * What secret is the new backstage manager hiding? * Find out if running a hotel is all it is cracked up to be * Who will be topping this year's bill at The Golden Sands? * Rock star Rick O'Shea sets a certain landlady's heart aflutter * Will Freda's new perfume cause a stink with the locals? * A new guest house launches, but with a difference * And the question on every landlady's lips: "Who will be head of GAGGA?" Back with his unique mix of Great Yarmouth locals, landladies and variety stars, Tony Gareth Smith revisits the seaside pleasures of yesteryear and reminds us when summer holidays were simpler and didn't involve the use of electronic mobile gadgets. So settle down with a quarter of your favourite sweets or a cup of tea and a cream horn and enjoy this year's most relaxing read.With the added bonus of a short story, Boarding Tonight preceding the main feature "Curtains", it is fun, fun, fun all the way...
