Jimmy Cricket returned to the Club Tropicana in Skegness – and described it as a “great night”.
The famous Northern Irish entertainer, billed by the club’s website in the build-up to his performance as “top comedian” and “star of TV”, appeared at the Lincolnshire venue on Saturday (28 July).
He had also done a show last September at the 2,000-seater club, which hosts a variety of acts including live bands, singers, dancers and comedians.
Jimmy posted on Twitter the photos above and the following message: “Great night at the, “New Tropicana”, Skegness with Ents Manager Chris Merry, Singer and Compère Helen Louise Farrell with Adam and Ben on sound and lighting, alongside the Ents team, and my friend Anthony popped in for a visit “
Irish comedian Jimmy Cricket has helped to raise money for a charity formed in memory of a little girl who died from a brain tumour.
He was appearing at the Corn Exchange Theatre in Stamford, Lincolnshire, over half-term week and part of the revenue from the show went to a local charity called Anna’s Hope.
The leading children’s brain tumour charity in the east of England, Anna’s Hope is dedicated to giving hope to children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour.
It was inspired by Anna Olivia Hughes, who tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months, and was set up by Anna’s parents, Rob and Carole Hughes, and her five godparents in October 2006.
Jimmy said: “I would like to thank the Corn Exchange manager Judith Mackie who put in a lot of hard work to make my visit happen. It was also her idea to raise funds for this very worthy cause.”
