Billy Pearce and Anita Harris Turn Back The Clock
This March The Good Old Days variety extravaganza returns to City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds.
BBC4 is currently re-running highlights on Fridays from the original TV light entertainment series which ran for 30 years, was watched by millions and took the City Varieties into households across the globe.
City Varieties’ live stage revival is now in its 28th year, hosted by legendary Chairman, Mr Johnny Dennis with the musical accompaniment of The City Varieties “Orchestra” led by Mr David Smith.
On Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March, actress, singer and panto legend Anita Harris tops the bill with the remainder of the performance comprising veteran Music Hall revivalist Peter John, comedian Richard Gauntlett and Scotland’s Cavalier of song, Jimmy McWilliams.
For the following weekend March 18 and 19, local lad Billy Pearce headlines with Crackerjack’s Jan Hunt, superstar soprano Rebecca Newman and comedy juggler Steve Rawlings rounding out the bill.
