The Cosy Nook
Richard Jose - Countertenor

A newspaper columnist for the Newquay Voice, Chris's writing skills have led him into the world of book writing and one of his titles is offered here. The Cosy Nook Theatre (1929-1991) was loved by all who patronised it or performed there, including stars like Benny Hill, Clive Dunn, Ray Alan and Phillip Schofield. Was there ever a Summer revue show like Gaytime? Chris Blount's Theatre By The Sea recalls its glory days when professional shows and local productions provided entertainment right through the year.

In common with seaside playhouses right around the coast of Britain, the Nook suffered a slow and painful decline as hotels provided their own entertainment and television was creating bigger stars. Cosy it was, but 388 seats (later 550) was not enough to pay such fees.
