The #RetiredPerformers Project is a series of images and audio interviews being captured over 12 months by Blackpool-based photographer, Claire Griffiths.

The Interval is a snapshot midway through the project of some of the stories she has gathered from the chauffeurs, dancers, performers and musicians who were active in Blackpool in, and prior to, the 1970s. 

Join Claire for a tour and talk event at The Grundy Art Gallery.
