Harwich Museum celebrates first birthday in style

A museum enjoyed a weekend of fun as it celebrated its first anniversary in style with notable names in attendance.

Harwich Museum celebrated its first birthday on Sunday, August 21, with an eventful day including stalls, raffles, a tombola and talks.

The festivities began on Friday with a coffee morning that was busy and well supported. Lisa Cowley, office administrator at the museum, said: “The celebration was a fun day and we all dressed up in Victorian swimwear to fit the theme.

“Shanty singers were present and Sandra Rogers played her accordion which was great.”

“Su Pollard finally made it down to the museum and she was hilarious. She is just like you expect her to be but is so down to earth and lovely.”

Following numerous requests for Su Online's vast News Archive - stretching back over 20 years - to be made available again. The good news is that we have managed to reinstate a large chunk of the News Archive - January 2001 to August 2014 and April 2019 to present, approximately 17 years of Su news - Unfortunately the archives between September 2014 and March 2019 are permanently lost.

05.03.2022: Nottingham Post: The Cast Of Hi-de-Hi!
What happened to the cast of Hi-de-Hi! - from soap stars to the West End

The holiday camp sitcom featured Nottingham's Su Pollard and Barry Howard

They may have hung up their yellow coats more than 30 years ago now, but the British holiday camp sitcom Hi-de-Hi! still makes us Ho-de-Ho all these years later.

Set in the fictional seaside town of Crimpton-on-Sea in the late 50s and into the 60s, the much-loved show ran for nine series from 1980 to 1988. Loosely based on Butlins or Pontins, the Maplins holiday camp flung a cast of relative unknown actors on to our screens.

17.12.2021: Snow White at Sunderland Empire - Reviews
A selection of reviews of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Su's panto for 2021 is currently wowing theatregoers at Sunderland Empire.

Sunderland Echo: Review: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sunderland Empire - Heigh ho, heigh ho, you’ll love this great panto: We’ve been waiting a long time so let’s come straight to the point. The Sunderland Empire’s first pantomime in two years does not disappoint -
Continue reading...

Sunderland Echo on Su: Sitcom legend Su Pollard stars as the Wicked Queen who, as the name suggests, is thoroughly unpleasant. She revels in the good round booing she receives every time she enters the stage. Her baddie credentials are revealed immediately in the prologue, which states that she supports Newcastle United (know your audience). Be honest. Who better to play a pantomime baddie? The audience is in good hands with Ms Pollard who can still belt out a tune too.

British Theatre Guide: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: I don’t think I’ve laughed so much at a panto for a long time, and that says a lot because huge amounts of comedy have been the stand-out feature of those I’ve seen this season. The traditional old jokes are well represented: the Dame confesses, “Whenever I’m down in the dumps, I buy a new dress” to which the reply comes, “I wondered where you got them from!” But it’s not the Comic, Muddles the Jester, who says it but Snow White, and that really does give it an extra punch -
Continue reading...

British Theatre Guide on Su: Su Pollard plays the Wicked Queen as a straight-down-the-line villain but just occasionally we caught a glimpse of Peggy Ollerenshaw which delighted the audience. She manages that delicate balance—so delicate that many villains don’t achieve it!—of being hated and at the same time loved by the audience.

16.12.2021: Sunderland Vibe - Su Interview
Su is the cover star of the festive issue of Sunderland Vibe magazine, with an interview inside.

A sit down with Wicked Queen, Su Pollard!

She's behind you! Su Pollard chats exclusively to Sunderland Vibe about the magic of panto season and her villainous role in the new production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs arriving at Sunderland Empire this winter...

Su, after such a long time away from the stage, how good does it feel to be back on the Sunderland Empire stage?
It has felt like decades away fom the stage. You miss doing warm-ups, learning music, you long for everything that goes with the production - It all adds to the excitement of being back again! We've just had the launch event for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and it was lovely meeting the cast. The best part for me was being in the Empire, it's a fantastic theatre!

What makes Sunderland Empire so special for you?
I love it! It was great being on stage and looking onto that beautiful auditotium again - it's the West End of the North East, isn't it! I have to say a special thanks to the cleaning ladies at the Empire - they are trememdous! Do you know how much brass there is? And I don't mean money! They're forever polishing and it just gleams fabulously.

09.10.2021: Crawley and Horsley Observer: Su Interview
A new Su interview, with the Crawley and Horley Observer, was published last week. Harpy played The Capitol in Horsham last Wednesday.

Su Pollard keeps her Horsham promise - despite "coitus interruptus"

Back in March last year, Su Pollard, looking forward to playing Horsham as the crisis loomed, declared herself to be ultimate optimist.

If the worst came to the worst, she insisted, and the virus forced her one-woman show off the calendar at the Capitol, she promised she would be back.

That day has finally come.

Harpy, first scheduled to be at the Capitol in April last year, is now at the Capitol on Wednesday, October 6 – a play which has arguably gained all the more relevance in the meantime with its message that we just shouldn’t judge people and that we should all “flippin’ well be a bit kinder.”
