Dad’s Army was one of the top TV comedy shows of all time, delighting audiences of 18 million plus between 1968 and 1977. The exploits of the hapless Capt. Mainwaring and his inept Home Guard platoon are still being shown to this day on TV all over the world and this year has seen the release of the new Dad’s Army feature film. Interest has seldom been higher.

Ian Lavender starred in the original Dad’s Army as Private Pike, the teenager whose mum made him wear a scarf “to protect him from the croup”, famously Capt. Mainwaring’s “You stupid boy!”. He shares with the writer and broadcaster Chris Serle a generous helping of his brilliantly funny anecdotes about the making of the series, at rehearsals, in the studio and on location with his fellow volunteer soldiers. The evening includes some of the most memorable clips from the 80 broadcast episodes.
