In 1934 the Council leased the Pavilion to a group of local business men who proposed to turn it into a Dance Hall.
Originally going to be called The Dansart, by the time it opened the name “The Marina” had been adopted. A new floor was laid, which soon became known as one of the finest dance floors in the area. The opening night saw hundreds dancing to live music, and a regular programme of dances followed.
