Blackpool stays are happy days for Jimmy Cricket
Jimmy Cricket is a month into his mammoth 32-date spring season at the popular Lyndene Hotel in the famous Lancashire seaside resort of Blackpool.
The season kicked off for the well-known entertainer on Wednesday 13 January and he will appear at the hotel a couple of times a week in the main up until the end of May.
So with four months still to go, Jimmy said: “My enthusiasm for the place is unquenched and I am enjoying every minute of it!
“This is partly down to the variety of guests who are staying at the hotel and also because of all my friends and supporters who are popping along to see me.”
Pictured right with Jimmy is Blackpool-based Frankie Whitte who visited the Lyndene to see him; they go way back as they were both Butlins Redcoats back in the early 1970s.
On one occasion at the end of January, Jimmy bumped into a contingent staying at the hotel from an organisation called the Union of Catholic Mothers, with whom he is familiar having appeared at some of their functions over the years.
Jimmy, 70, added: “I am delighted to be in residency at the Lyndene Hotel and thank the owners – Barry and his wife, Carole – for fixing this up for me.”
