A great night was had by all those who came to see Jimmy Cricket recently at the All Saints Church Hall in Hesketh Bank, West Lancashire.
The event was organised by Jimmy’s friend, Tom Shorrock, who hails from neighbouring Walmer Bridge. Tom is a milkman during the day and lives outside the village on a farm.
He has arranged many events over the years at the Walmer Bridge Village Hall and not just with Jimmy, but with other comedians such as Dusty Young and Norman Prince, plus bands like as The Swing Commanders and the Jive Aces.
When Tom asked Jimmy whether he would consider coming to a new venue he had found in nearby Hesketh Bank, the famous Northern Irish entertainer could not refuse.
Appearing alongside 71-year-old Jimmy was his wife, the female vocalist May Marion.
Jimmy, pictured left performing on the night, said: “When I arrived at the All Saints Church Hall I was pleasantly surprised to find a stage and a set of curtains, and Tom had even brought some friends along to install a PA system for the show!”
With a good crowd in attendance for the evening’s performance, it turned out to be another of Tom’s extravaganzas!
