A new production of award-winning one-man show Morecambe opens in St Albans later this month.

St Albans’ favourite funnyman, and star of the Alban Arena’s annual pantomime, Bob Golding, is returning to the venue with Morecambe on Saturday, March 29 at 7.30pm.

Tim Whitnall’s Olivier Award-winning play stars Golding as comedy icon Eric Morecambe, who lived in Harpenden.

Directed by Paul Hendy, producer of the Alban Arena’s pantomimes, the show is a moving, often hilarious tale about one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers.

From humble beginnings in music hall, to 28 million viewers on Christmas Day, it’s the heart-warming, tear-jerking, laughter-inducing story of the man “what brought us sunshine”.

Golding takes on not only Morecambe himself, but also the huge array of characters that filled his life, from market trader and comedy sketch writer Eddie Braben, to Bruce Forsythe and Ernie Wise, Eric’s partner in crime.

It’s a poignant and entertaining tribute to a true British icon on the 30th anniversary of his untimely death.

Tickets cost £17.50, with concessions £1 off.
