Remember, remember the second of November! 150 150 mhamer

Remember, remember the second of November!

Hi folks, two rooms and two great audiences @LyndeneHotel tonight! And the stage was ready for the celebration of the funny spooky season of Halloween! 🎃👻

The first Wednesday in November can only mean one thing… Jimmy Cricket is back at the Lyndene Hotel!

Famous Northern Irish comedian Jimmy currently appears at the popular Blackpool venue on the first Wednesday of every month.

He is performing at the Lyndene next on 2 November and finishes off his 2022 season there on 7 December.

His latest Halloween-themed appearance was on 5 October.

Jimmy posted the photos above afterwards on social media.

Jimmy has dubbed the Lyndene as his “second home”.

This is his seventh season at the promenade hotel – read about his 2022 return here.

And he has already confirmed an eighth year of appearances there.

Been touring more this year, but it’s wonderful to be back at the Lyndene Hotel (the 1st Wednesday of every month, now till December 2022), here with Tom the compère/singer/musician and Colin on keyboards!

His first date at the Lyndene in 2023 is on Wednesday 5 July.
Additionally, he will be performing there on 2 August, 6 September, 4 October, 1 November and 6 December.
Paul Swift, general manager at the Lyndene, told Jimmy: “We love nothing more than getting to split our sides laughing on the first Wednesday of every month watching your show when you come to visit.

“Jimmy isn’t just one of our incredible acts, he’s family and takes the time to speak to all of our team and check how they each are when he comes to visit.

“Thank you for being you Mr Cricket!

“We look forward to your visits and always love watching your fantastic act!”

Jimmy commented: “May and I enjoy working at the Lyndene (our second home).
“Always great to chat to Courtney and Branden, lots of love to you and Claire and everyone at #TeamLyndene!”

The hotel’s website says: “Located on Blackpool’s glorious seafront, the Lyndene Hotel is the No 1 choice for hotels with entertainment in Britain’s favourite holiday destination.

“Situated amongst family attractions, glittering show venues, great shopping and Blackpool’s jewel, the Blackpool Tower, our hotel is in the prime position for your holiday base.

“With sweeping views across the Irish Sea, with incomparable sunsets and people-watching, the Lyndene Hotel has all the amenities to make your stay perfect.”

Open 365 days a year

“Our entertainment keeps our guests returning to us again and again.

“We host up to four top cabaret and tributes acts each and every night of the year!”

The Lyndene appeared as Le Ponderosa in the second series of Peter Kay’s TV hit comedy Phoenix Nights.

Events calendar fixed – and improved!

Jimmy Cricket events calendar

The feature on this website showing all Jimmy Cricket’s forthcoming appearances is working again!

And there’s more! The old calendar, which stopped functioning properly a while ago for unknown reasons, has been replaced by something bigger and better.

An enhanced feature allows fans to subscribe to the calendar if they wish through Google, meaning they can now receive phone texts and email reminders.

There is also the facility for Google maps to show everyone exactly where events are taking place.

Famous Irish comedian Jimmy says: “I’m really excited that the calendar is working again and even more so that it has been improved and will provide more information about my forthcoming shows.

“This will respond to feedback we have been receiving from fans enquiring why the calendar function was not working properly. It just took a bit longer than we expected to be put right – but it is has clearly been well worth the wait!”

Go straight to the new-style calendar here.
