Jimmy Cricket received a warm welcome on a cold January day when he went for a  walkabout in Stockport town centre a few weeks ago.

The well-known entertainer thought it would be a good way of promoting his forthcoming visit to Stockport’s Plaza Theatre.

Armed with his much-loved saxophone, he decided he would join his friends, the busking outfit called the Lamplighters, and walk from the pub called The Swan With Two Necks in central Stockport.

They went along Mersey Square in front of the main entrance to the Merseyway Shopping Centre, and then on to the theatre itself.

This was really welcomed by Jimmy as it was, after all, a cold January afternoon!

Among the many pleasant people he met during the walk included Martin and Annette Logan (photos above and right) and Darren Healey (left).
