Jimmy rehearsed part of the play (see photo above right) on his latest ‘Charity Jam Night’ at St Vincent’s Parish Centre in Rochdale on Tuesday 14 August.

The jam nights, hosted by the Northern Irish entertainer and his wife May Marion every couple of months, take place in the lounge area of the parish centre and people can attend for free.

It started more than a decade ago as an opportunity for Jimmy and other performers to try out new routines.

At every event,  there is a raffle and the selling of refreshments, with all proceeds donated to a chosen charity.
