The latest luncheon arranged for Jimmy Cricket and some of his friends from the showbusiness fraternity in northern England took place earlier this summer.

The Wooden Hut club is the periodic and informal get-together arranged for the fellow entertainers.

It takes place at the Royal Toby restaurant in Castleton, Rochdale, which is ideally located because of the easy access to and from the M62 motorway, and is jointly organised by two of Jimmy’s good friends – BBC Radio producer Steve Garner and Rochdale-based performer Eric Devereaux.

This latest edition of the club was at the beginning of June and was also attended, among others, by comedian Smug Roberts, Buzz Hawkins from the Bradshaws – the radio and television comedy – actor John Hensall and impersonator Johnny Moore.
