Sir Ken at Theatre Severn

Ken Dodd became a ‘sir’ in the Queen’s 2017 New Year’s Honours List, a fitting tribute to a comedian of legendary status who was born in 1927 and made his professional debut in 1954. This national treasure will be delivering his Happiness Show at Theatre Severn on 23 June. You’ll be absolutely discumknockerated (that’s Knotty Ash for ‘over the moon’) by a truly tattifelarius evening of laughter and songs, from opera to ballads, presented by a comedy genius and his guests.

The show starts at 7pm and tickets cost £23.50; for more information visit
