Update to The Goodies: Buster Keaton Classics & Rarities

In a slight change to this event, the brilliant Tim Brooke-Taylor will be joining virtually (onscreen) Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden (rather than in person). The celebrity trio will celebrate and illustrate their love of the comedy master Buster Keaton.

This will be a fantastic presentation of three of Buster's finest and funniest silent comedy shorts!

Not forgetting, there will also be live musical accompaniment from multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne

And second…


‘The Goodies: The Musical Phenomenon
with Bill Oddie
SUN 28 JAN 0930hrs Watershed £8.00/£6.00
 
The much-loved television comedy series The Goodies drew tens of millions of fans each week in 1974-75. An exceptional feature of the show, however, was Bill Oddie’s series of extraordinary musical compositions, which exploded into the mainstream pop charts, while songs such as ‘The Inbetweeners ‘and ‘Funky Gibbon’ became top selling chart hits.  Tim, Bill and Graeme found themselves appearing on Top of The Pops alongside the top musical acts of the time.
Bill Oddie in conversation with author and comedy historian Robert Ross talks candidly about his work writing songs for the long running TV series, their chart successes, and what it was like being bona fide pop star in the 70s.’

Alison Evans, Thames Hospice’s head of community and events fundraising, said: “We’re hoping for another sell-out night, so we can raise lots of funds to support our services – which are open 24/7 and caring for local people on Christmas Day, as any other day of the year. Please join us, and we promise you, your friends and family, will have fun and enjoy the magic of the festive season.”

The event takes place at the Wellington College at Duke's Ride, Crowthorne.

Alongside the music, will be readings from guests including the Mayor of Bracknell Councillor Tina McKenzie-Boyle, Thames Hospice ambassador Kate Atkinson, plus the charity’s medical director Doctor Cecily Wright. Tickets include mince pies and mulled wine, which will be served from 6.30pm.

This event raises funds through ticket sales and a retiring collection on the night. For more details, or to book, visit www.thameshospice.org.uk/wellington or call 01753 842121. Tickets are £15.
