Freddie returning to Leeds City Varieties in March

For those within reach of Leeds, Freddie Davies will be returning to the City Varieties to take part in The Good Old Days shows on 9th March (Friday evening) and 10th March (Saturday matinee) 2018.

This time Freddie will be assuming the role of chairman as his pal Bernie Clifton is topping the bill; Jan Hunt, who worked with Bernie on Crackerjack, is also appearing. 

The City Varieties is a place redolent with memories for Freddie, who has played there over the years; his grandad, Jack Herbert, a comedian who once had Sid Field as his straight man, also appeared there. If you haven't been there before, even from the back of the stalls it feels extraordinarily intimate: ideal for comedy as well as song. 

You can book via the theatre's website here.

Funny Bones: My Life in Comedy by Freddie Davies with Anthony Teague is available from amazon (paperback) or direct from Scratching Shed Publishing (paperback or limited edition hardback).
