BUTLINS BOGNOR 1960

BUTLINS BOGNOR'S BUBBLY BLONDE
Butlins Bognor 1960 was one place where the phrase:
"I don't like Mundays" was definitely never uttered.

My name is Liz Munday, or was in 1960. I was a Redcoat and, after 6 weeks training at Skegness, I opened Bognor Regis Butlins. There I met, and later married, Eddie Keene - the resident comedian .

The cowboy is Camp Comic, Eddie Keene.
With him at the mic' is Dave Butler, who went on
to achieve fame in the TV series "The Comedians."

And here is Eddie Keene burlesquing on
the dance floor with another Redcoat.

When Eddie Keene put his cap on,
that meant he was in comedy mode.

impersonation of Jimmy Durante

We loved every minute of it, even the collapse of the indoor swimming pool. Then, when the campers flushed the toilets, the taps in the sink came on. The campers saying that there were no mattresses in the chalets.

Liz and Eddie did sometimes manage to
get together during working hours.

I could go on forever, but all great experiences!

CHOPSTICKS ANYONE?
The lovely Liz performing "The Stick Dance."

I learned how to entertain 4,200 campers, while they had their breakfast; to looking after the kids in the Kids Club. I was part of Radio Butlin, and did sing-songs in the 'Pig and Whistle' bar. That was before the Cabaret spots, the Lancers, the Chopsticks, the Redcoat Show, and the Sunday Night Variety Show on the revolving stage. I was 18 at the time.
