07.06.2021: Hi-de-Hi! - 40th Anniversary with Su & Jeff
Robert Ross Presents Hi-De-Hi: a 40th anniversary reunion with Su Pollard and Jeffrey Holland

Hi-De-Hi, David Croft and Jimmy Perry's spirited love letter to the declining days of the British holiday camp, was first broadcast in the January of 1980 and proved an instant success.

In a unique and exciting Museum of Comedy event that is bound to sell out very quickly, we are delighted to be joined by Su Pollard, who shot to stardom as the eager-to-please chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw, and Jeffrey Holland, who spent nearly a decade wearing funny costumes and falling in to the Olympic-sized swimming pool as camp comic Spike Dixon.

As well as fond memories of Hi-De-Hi, Su and Jeffrey will share tales of You Rang, M'Lord, the series that reunited them with the late Paul Shane; as well as Oh, Doctor Beeching! which, twenty five years ago, once more cast the trio of comedy favourites.

Just this last pantomime season Su and Jeffrey were back on stage together, starring in Dick Whittington at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. The production was a box office smash.

This intimate and affectionate, clip-laden chat, chaired by Britain's comedy historian Robert Ross, promises to be a show not to be missed!

This show was rescheduled from 22nd November 2021 (originally 22nd March 2020).

04.08.2020: Metro: Weekend Extra - Lockdown
Su Pollard became a much-loved sitcom star in the 1980s with the BBC’s Hi-de-Hi!, and has since had a wide-ranging stage and screen career, starring in musicals and pantomime. Su says:

When the theatres were closed, I’d just done four performances of a one-person show called Harpy: it’s a beautiful play about a hoarder and how she got into that situation. The great thing is that all the dates have been rescheduled for next year, and we’ve also added some extra ones. I still don’t take it for granted that they’ll go ahead, but I use the H-word because you’ve got to have hope, darling.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work consistently for nearly 50 years, but it’s the younger performers I really feel for, the ones who’ve just come out of college and got their first job. What a terrible knock to their confidence this will be, and a terrible knock to their finances. And it’s not just the actors I worry about, it’s the lighting and sound guys and all the rest of the crew: we all need each other to put a production on.
