Meet the stars of CRACKERJACK!
STOP PRESS: On Saturday 15th September we shall be reuniting some famous faces from a TV Teatime Children’s Classic!
If you were a child in the late ‘50s, the ‘60s, the ‘70s or early ‘80s you’ll have your own memory of TV’s longest-running teatime variety show. Eamonn Andrews piling prizes on the clever-clogs and cloth cabbages on the chumps… the pompous and perpetually heckled Glaze Lectures … those slapstick silent movies… historical finales with anachronistic pop songs… or Stu Francis splattered with garish gunge.
Alan Stafford has traced the 29-year history of Crackerjack from the very first cabbage to the last crushed grape, recalling the best of the onscreen fun while revealing loads of backstage secrets. All the triumphs and tiffs, the perils and pranks.
To launch the new title, we shall be reuniting members of the show’s thirty year tenure including Don Maclean, Jan Hunt, Jillian Comber, Rod McLennan, Tony Hare, Alan J W Bell, Christine Ozanne, Sara Hollamby, Kate O’Sullivan and Leigh Miles.
Tickets cost £25, and include a copy of Alan’s book, access to stage talks and a signature from each and every guest in attendance. Click here for more information.
