STAGE and television stalwart Roy Hudd is set to bring his latest show to the intimate surroundings of Huntingdon Hall in Worcester this weekend.
Now in his fifty-first year in showbusiness having started out as a Butlin redcoat, Roy has tackled just about everything from stand-up, pantomime and farce to film, musicals and the plays of Shakespeare, Stoppard and Cooney.
Roy’s career began in the late 1950s with seasons at Richmond Theatre, The Young Vic and Regents Park before his television career started with the BBC’s notorious Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life which led to countless appearances in entertainment and drama productions.
Roy recently filmed the role of Morse Code Martin in Our Robot Overlords for Pinewood Films, Victor Spencer in Midsomer Murders, Feilx in Law & Order and Tommy Sandison in Doctors.
Prior to this he played the role of Joe Collett in Call The Midwife for the BBC and completed a hugely successful run playing Henry Ormonroyd in When We Are Married at The Garrick Theatre in London.
In 2003 Roy was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours for his continued contribution to entertainment.
An Evening with Roy Hudd takes place on Sunday (July 6) at 7.30pm. Tickets are £20 and available from the Box Office on 01905 611427.
