Julia Midgley was Artist in Residence at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from 2000 to 2002. This high quality publication is the result of her stay at the park. She has captured the essence of the Pleasure Beach, both in front of and behind the scenes, with her sketchpad.

This book charts Midgley's residency in the form of a journal, illustrating the nature of Blackpool Pleasure Beach at the start of a new Century, a rich tapestry of every imaginable fun day out.

The journal follows Midgley's exploration of the park, lavishly illustrated with her colour sketches. From the Launch of the Dipperthon and the new ride Valhalla, to Midgley's exploration of the different rides and attractions. It is not only beautifully illustrated, it is also a beautifully written account of a world famous amusement park through the seasons.

Published by Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and with an introduction by Geoffrey Thompson OBE.
