Comedian to headline

COMEDIAN Jimmy Cricket will be the headline act at a special family variety show in Buxton next week.

Offering family friendly humour, the well-loved Irish comic will be performing at the Pavilion Arts Centre as part of a special show to celebrate the 150th anniversary of St Anne’s Catholic Church.

Jimmy’s best known catchphrases include “come closer!” and “…and there’s more!” while his act often includes a “Letter from Mammy”.

His trademark outfit is usually cut-off evening trousers, dinner jacket, hat and wellies marked “L” and “R” for left and right, but worn on the wrong feet.

Jimmy will be joined by a varied line-up of local performers including the every-popular Billerettes, the Mad Hatter’s Choir and jazz performers together with a series of comedy sketches that may even feature Father Dennis Higgins.

The Variety Show, which should be great fun for all the family, takes place at 7pm on Sunday, September 25, at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton.

Tickets, priced £6 for adults and £3 for children, are selling fast.

A number are still available from Sue Hardman on 01298 78955.
