The inflatable circus frontage of the Fun House, pictured at the start of the 1981 season. Inside were a variety of amusements, including a slide, machines, rides – even a mini zoo. The zoo featured monkeys, parrots, gerbils and guinea pigs. The Fun House was the brainchild of Stuart Keane and was located in the former Lounge Cinema auditorium.

The Promenade frontage of The Forum pictured on a dull winter’s day in 1998. Behind the new façade can clearly be seen Joyland’s 1930s amusement park-style art deco entrance. This entrance was once illuminated and bedecked with flags; by the late 1990s it was crumbling and almost derelict. Photograph: Nick Laister

Remnants of Joyland: The Coronation Ark pillars in January 2000, still featuring the black paint and cut-out stars it sported when it was the Joyland Speedway in 1980. The Ark is currently stored in the yard of Derbyshire-based independent showman, Jack Schofield. Photograph: Nick Laister
