2023 – Legends of Variety

2023 Tour, with Tommy appearing on selected dates

Hailing from the world of variety and the very best in television entertainment from the sixties, seventies and eighties through to the present day, Legends Of Variety brings together a fabulous line-up of old-school Star Turns still performing at the top of their game.

These entertainers are all of a certain vintage, but their experience and knowledge gained by years of honing their craft remains a joy to behold.

The tour was staged by Freddie ‘Parrotface’ Davies. Other stars appearing on various dates were Anita Harris, Bobby Crush, Bernie Clifton, The Grumbleweeds, Billy Pearce, Hilary O’Neil, Paul Zenon and Jon Courtenay.
