Christmas jam night in Rochdale with Maureen’s Tappers & ‘Elvis Presley’
Maureen’s Tappers and an Elvis Presley impersonator were among the acts at Jimmy’s Cricket’s Christmas jam night in Rochdale.
The event, hosted by the famous Northern Irish entertainer and his wife May Marion every couple of months, takes place in the lounge area of St Vincent’s RC parish centre in his home town of Rochdale.
It started about a decade ago as an opportunity for Jimmy and other performers to try out new routines and is still going strong.
The famous entertainer has nicknamed those who regularly support these evenings as ‘Jimmy’s Jammers’.
At every event, there is a raffle and the selling of refreshments, with all proceeds donated to a chosen charity.
Francis House Children’s Hospice, which is based in Didsbury, was the beneficiary of the December jam night.
Famous funnyman Jimmy, 73, posted on social media: “Great Festive Fun this evening at the “St Vincent’s Jam Night”, with my fellow act Jim Nicholas [aka Elvis Presley] and Maureen’s Tappers raising funds for #FrancisHouseCH ?”
