Potters Resort blog on Jimmy Cricket's career

Jimmy Cricket talks about his Papal Knighthood, wellington boots and what makes him laugh in an online interview which was published recently on the Potters Resort blog.

Potters Resort is a modern five-star holiday village situated on the coastline border of Norfolk and Suffolk in Hopton-on-Sea.

An entry on Wikipedia – a free encyclopedia to which the public can contribute – says it was the first permanent holiday camp in the United Kingdom, opening its doors for the first time in 1920.

The Potters Resort blog did a question-and-answer style interview with famous Northern Irish entertainer Jimmy ahead of his forthcoming appearance at the holiday village and there are excerpts from the article below.Potters Resort blog on Jimmy Cricket's career

Dancing in the Lancashire snow

Jimmy Cricket in the snowJimmy Cricket clearly enjoyed the snowy weather when he visited Oswaldtwistle Arts Centre ahead of his comedy show there later this month.

When the famous entertainer arrived at the Lancashire venue, the weather had created a dramatic snowy backdrop.

This fine image was captured by freelance photographer Tim Bradley, who had been hired by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph to take some snaps of Jimmy’s visit to the arts centre.

Jimmy has known Tim for a long time as he used to be the picture editor of the local paper where the well-known comedian is based in Rochdale.

Jimmy meets his ‘half-brother’ – made of sugar!

Jimmy Cricket with Julie Sharkey who created the miniature model of the famous comedianJimmy Cricket met a miniature model of himself when he recently visited the Oswaldtwistle Arts Centre in Lancashire.

The famous entertainer had gone to the centre to see how preparations were going for his stand-up comedy show scheduled for the end of February there.

His visit coincided with a Craft and Natter session (picture below) dedicated to the skill of sugar crafting.

Much to his amazement, when Jimmy arrived at the arts centre he was greeted by himself in miniature.

The group leader, Julie Sharkey (pictured right), had created a small figure of Jimmy to mark his visit to see the group. It had incredible detail of the comedian, even to the length of including those iconic wellington boots.

Jimmy was thrilled with the model and even joked that it was his half-brother!
