The Pierrotters

Totally unique, and utterly mobile, the Pierrotters are five versatile and energetic performers/musicians. Since 1983 The Pierrotters have provided riotous family entertainment to audiences up and down Britain’s balmy coast.

We’ll be bringing our unique mixture of acapella songs, sweet ballads, musical hall routines and rock’n’roll to this year’s fun and sun seekers. A trip back to the 20’s in truly contemporary style!

Fully clad in white satin and black pom-poms, The Pierrotters will tantalise you to titters and tease you to tears as you lie in your deckchairs and drink tea or sup beers. Enjoy our company at any outdoor event, festival, club, hotel, homes for the elderly, music hall, civic function or end of the pier show…

Having toured every summer for over a quarter of a century, The Pierrotters are currently resting their pom-poms and are not taking any bookings, except by special request.  In the meantime, feel free to have a gander at these little snippets of the Rotters in action!

The Pier-Echoes

The Pier-Echoes was a Pierrot troupe founded in Summer 2010 and made up of four emerging artists. Promenade Promotions’ Tony Lidington teamed up with Dr.Jane Milling of the University of Exeter’s drama department for a Heritage Lottery funded research project, “Revitalising the Prom”, where a new Pierrot troupe would perform on the proms, piers and park benches of the English Riviera. The Echoes were featured on BBC Radio Devon, BBC Spotlight and filmed an episode for BBC 2′s “The Edwardian Farm”. Use the following links to have a look at what they got up to!
