Robert Ross Presents Hi-De-Hi: a 40th anniversary reunion with Su Pollard and Jeffrey Holland

Hi-De-Hi, David Croft and Jimmy Perry's spirited love letter to the declining days of the British holiday camp, was first broadcast in the January of 1980 and proved an instant success. In a unique and exciting Museum of Comedy event that is bound to sell out very quickly, we are delighted to be joined by Su Pollard, who shot to stardom as the eager-to-please chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw, and Jeffrey Holland, who spent nearly a decade wearing funny costumes and falling in to the Olympic-sized swimming pool as camp comic Spike Dixon. As well as fond memories of Hi-De-Hi, Su and Jeffrey will share tales of You Rang, M'Lord, the series that reunited them with the late Paul Shane; as well as Oh, Doctor Beeching! which, twenty five years ago, once more cast the trio of comedy favourites. Just this last pantomime season Su and Jeffrey were back on stage together, starring in Dick Whittington at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. The production was a box office smash. This intimate and affectionate, clip-laden chat, chaired by Britain's comedy historian Robert Ross, promises to be a show not to be missed!

DRACULA: ONE BLOODY FANG AFTER ANOTHER Written and Performed by John Hewer One Man. Eighteen Characters. Plenty at Stake… Whitby, England, 1897. What kept you?

The Professor has a perplexing diagnosis – Lucy carries all the symptoms of a vampire’s latest victim. So begins a frenzied stab at trying to uncloak Count Dracula as the vampire in their midst. Sadly, it gets quite midsty in Whitby at times… Bram Stoker’s immortal horror story is given an affectionate lampooning in this physical, riotous comedy. Now, it is truly horrific. SELL-OUT 2019.

Growing Pains

Kitty doesn't want to grow up. The older she gets, the more abnormal she feels. This comical drama explores deep questions about growing up, and whether anything about that bizarre process could ever be considered “normal”. ‘Growing Pains’ is a coming-of-age comical drama, exploring the challenges of peer pressure, feminism, mental health, and the reality of letting go of childhood. Told through a series of flashback monologues, which interweave around the adventures of Kitty’s childhood toys, this play delves into memorable and embarrassing experiences all of us go through when transitioning from child to adult. What do you do when puberty hits you in the face before you’re even ready for it?

Tom Binns: The ‘Psychic’ Comedium

Multi award winning comedian Tom Binns has performed his ‘Psychic’ Character Ian D Montfort to 5-star reviews around The World and in the smash hit British film “Eaten by Lions”. He’s entertained and amazed sceptics and believers alike on his own BBC Radio 2 series ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’ and his critically acclaimed BBC 1 Friday night series Hospital People. During this time Tom claims to have discovered a genuine ‘psychic’ ability and now performs as The ‘Psychic’ Comedium. In his performances Tom clearly makes jaw dropping revelations about his audience but is he gifted or is he deluded or is he just full of shit? Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his ‘psychic’ powers are unbelievable! “Binns has either gone native or so deeply ironic that he’s lost touch with reality. I can only assume he sells more tickets if he claims to be the real deal. In this post-truth ‘end of days’ era we’re living in, why not? Best of luck to him.” - Evening Mail
