It’s good to see Tim Brooke-Taylor back on the Clive Conway Productions circuit with Oh Goody! A true master of comedy, Tim will be appearing at the No. 8 Arts centre in Pershore, Worcestershire on Friday (19th January). He will be in Conversation with journalist and broadcaster Chris Serle and sharing a wealth of great stories and anecdotes from his long career on stage, screen and radio. 

This includes of course tales from The Goodies and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and there will be  plenty of surprises too. Tim relates how he once directed Orson Welles in a feature film, shot a memorable round of golf with Sevvy Ballesteros, persuaded David Frost to employ Marty Feldman and played a key role in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

You are also likely to hear stories about John Cleese, Richard Wilson, Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie and many more. With luck Tim may just be persuaded to reveal the truth about ‘Clue’ stalwart 'the lovely Samantha' and the rules of Mornington Crescent. 

Add to all this warmth and good humour plenty of clips of great moments from Tim’s TV and film appearances and you’re sure of a memorable evening of fun and laughter.

Oh Goody! An Audience with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Chris Serle will be at the Number 8 Arts Centre in Pershore, Worcestershire, on Friday 19th January. For further information go to www.number8.org
