Oxton show: ‘Lovely to be back doing the job I love’
Jimmy Cricket welcomed the “wonderful atmosphere” in Oxton as he celebrated his eagerly awaited return to performing live on stage.
The popular Northern Irish entertainer did a show at Oxton Conservative Club in Birkenhead on the Wirral, Merseyside, last Sunday (27 June).
It was the first time this year he had faced a live audience in person.
He said: “While adhering to 30 people-only gatherings, it was lovely to get back to the job I love this afternoon at the Oxton Con Club.
“My thanks to Jacqueline and Caroline and everyone who turned up and made it such a wonderful atmosphere! #wirral”.
The coronavirus pandemic forced the suspension of most stage performances for the majority of the past 15 months.
Jimmy is looking forward to returning to the Lyndene, his favourite Blackpool hotel, on Wednesday (7 July).
He has performed shows regularly on the busy Lyndene’s two stages over the past few years.
Coronavirus restrictions forced the postponement of many of his performances at the Lyndene during 2020.
Jimmy did his last show there in September before another lockdown resulted in the closure of hospitality venues.
He now appears once a month at the Lyndene until the end of the year.
