Exciting news! We have our first evening performance at the new museum. Following on from our successful event on Ulverston’s Carnival Day earlier in the year (always the first Saturday in July if you’d like to join us next time), I am pleased to announce that Jeffrey Holland (yes, him from Hi-De-Hi) is returning to the museum to perform his new one man play …and this is my friend Mr Laurel. Those of you who know a little about the museum may remember that Jeff first came to the museum in 1983 to cut the ribbon for our first official opening. Since then he has appeared in a string of iconic sitcoms, including It Aint Half Hot Mum, You Rang M’Lord?, Oh Doctor Beeching and of course Hi-De-Hi.
The play features Stan Laurel visiting the sick bed of Oliver Hardy and recounting their past success as the worlds best loved comedy duo. Gail Louw, and Mr Holland himself, spent two years writing and producing this touching and humorous look at the finest comedy double act of their generation.
The play is on the 19th of October, doors open at 7:00pm, prices £12/£10 and tickets can be bought here.
