Roy Hudd will be lending his comedic touch to entertain the audience at The Riverside Theatre this Father's Day
Actor and comedian Roy Hudd and his wife Debbie will be taking to the stage at The Riverside Theatre on Sunday June 16th to help raise funds for Prevent Breast Cancer, the only UK charity that funds ground breaking research entirely dedicated to preventing breast cancer for future generations, their mantra being 'Predict. Prevent. Protect'.
As well as organising this event, Gilly Sillett is also preparing for her mission to climb to Base Camp Everest in November 2019. She is hoping that this, alongside the entertaining afternoon with Mr Hudd, will encourage people to help the charity with their life saving research. If you would like to donate, Ms Sillett has a fundraising page under her name on the website Virgin Money Giving.
Not only is Mr Hudd kindly performing his show free of charge but the theatre are also selling tickets from their box office or on 01394 382174 for a small fee of £10 for this fun-filled event taking place at 1.30pm on Father's Day.
He says: "This very different chat show is one that both me and the missus love doing. Debbie interviews me about my long(ish) career of 60 years and our trifle shorter career together of 39 years.
"She's great at reminding me of the best stories and pretty snappy with the one liners herself. It's a collection of verbal dueling, triumphs, disasters, name dropping, songs, monologues and jokes, nice and some naughty, if she lets me!"
Mr Hudd has enjoyed a varied career from Shakespeare to Coronation Street to broadcasting on Radio 2 for his topical show 'The News Huddlines' which ran for 26 years.
He was awarded his OBE in 2004 for his services in defending and promoting our musical history and is the long standing President of The British Music Hall Society.
If you're struggling to think of a gift for Father's Day or just want to help raise funds for Prevent Breast Cancer, then grab a ticket before they all go, in what will certainly be a raucous evening of laughter and chat, all in the name of a good cause.
