Pavilion is a celebration of the world of the English dandy, its gorgeous peacock feathers and fading glamour. Her cast of eccentric characters live somewhere on the coast of Greeneland, between the Brighton Pavilion and the ruined West Pier. They entertain their listeners at the bar, revealing the sad secrets behind the peep-shows and arcades, cheap thrills and expensive mistakes.
