What it feels like to ... RUN THE BLACK­POOL TOWER

The Herald Magazine - - FIRST UP - KENNY MEW

Gaz­ing up at the Black­pool Tower as a seven-year-old, I knew it was mag­i­cal. My par­ents de­cided to buy a ho­tel in the town and took me and my older sis­ter on a trip from our home in Dum­fries to look round. I was ut­terly be­witched by the Il­lu­mi­na­tions, com­plete with ele­phants on the beach. I thought I had ar­rived on a film set. I am 39 but re­mem­ber it like it was yes­ter­day.
