1896 Article about J D Hunter, Pier Entertainments Manager

J D Hunter was Entertainment Manager on the Pier from 1879 to 1909. He started his career on the music hall stage, and was largely responsible for making the Pier a successful entertainment venue by bringing the top entertainers of the day to Hastings.

According to J D Hunter, the Entertainment Manager on the Pier from 1879 to 1909 (who himself started out as a music hall performer), ““the class of people appealed to by …the Piers is quite different to that attracted by the up-to-date Music Hall… It is so much more respectable to see a variety entertainment on the Pier than to be observed going into an ordinary Music Hall”.”
