Story from The Oldham Advertiser about the charity show

Jimmy Cricket will be teaming up with other stars from the world of showbusiness in October to raise money for charity.

The legendary Irish comedian will be performing in the “Stars Come Out” show at the Oldham Coliseum as a fundraiser for the Francis House Hospice.

Also appearing will be The Krankies – very good friends of Jimmy’s – and 1960s Merseybeat band Swinging Blue Jeans.

The show will now be on October 10 and 11 after the originally-planned one-day performance was sold out.

Jimmy says: “It will be a very special show as it is not often that you find The Krankies, myself and the Swinging Blue Jeans in town and all on the same bill.

“The Francis House Children’s Hospice is a wonderful place where a lot of support and care is provided.”

Tickets are £15, with concessions £12, and are available from the box office on 0161 624 2829 or by going to the Coliseum’s website

Jimmy Cricket was at the Overgate Hospice  in Elland near Halifax, West Yorkshire, on Sunday (June 22) for their annual summer garden party.

Here is one of the photographs from what was a great fundraising day. You can see the rest on the photo gallery which is on the right of every page on my website.

The weather was kind as it stayed dry which always helps at a summer garden party!

Jimmy is grateful to fabulous singer and friend Neil Hurst. Praise also goes to Janet and Caroline who are tip-top fundraisers.

It was also great to see Mayor Naden of Calderdale, his Kilkenny-born wife and their two handsome sons.
