More Tea, Vicar? With Dads Army Vicar Frank Williams
When?Start time: Sunday 1:00pm (01 July)
End time: Sunday 3:00pm (01 July)
Dad`s Army Vicar Frank Williams invites you to join him for a hilarious afternoon of TV nostalgia celebrating 50 years of the hit BBCTV series!
Everybody loves Dad’s Army. Even after 50 years it continues to pull huge viewing figures becoming one of the all-time classic ‘greats’ of television, also enjoying West-End success, a Royal Variety Performance, a national tour, a themed cruise and now the new feature film in which Frank returns as the vicar. David Croft and Jimmy Perry chose Frank to create the role of the wonderfully eccentric vicar who was always slightly tetchy as he tried to come to terms with the elderly platoon’s invasion of his beloved church hall. Join Frank – the oldest surviving member of the original cast - as he celebrates a lifetime on Stage, TV, Film and the legendary BBCTV series. In an entertaining trip down memory lane, Frank gives a unique glimpse behind the scenes and stories of the celebrated TV & Film casts of Dad`s Army & a host of other TV classics such as Emergency Ward 10; All Gas & Gaiters; Morecambe & Wise; The Two Ronnie’s and many more. Following a UK Tour and London run in 2016, Frank is again interviewed by author & entertainer Chris Gidney in a lively afternoon of television nostalgia which includes Franks rarely seen home movie of the Dads Army cast on tour, and Frank will sign copies of his best-selling autobiography, Vicar to Dad`s Army.
“He tells of his craft with an infectious geniality.”
