Broadcasting legend Danny Baker is going on tour for the first time ever and he’ll be bringing his one-man show and signature encyclopaedic wit to Telford.
The BBC Radio 5 Live presenter’s ‘Cradle to the Stage’ will come to Oakengates Theatre @ The Place on Thursday 16 March 2017 as part of a 35 date tour of the UK.
Danny said: “The stage has always been my first love. Let me put that another way. I have never done anything like this before in my life.
“No two nights of this extravaganza will be the same. This is less of a boast than admission that a) I am hopeless at learning scripts and b) I still have no idea what I am going to include. Perhaps you can help? If you’ve read my books, watched the series based on them or, indeed, ever caught anything I have presented on television/radio then maybe you might contribute to the feast of reason and flow of the soul that I guarantee these evenings will contain.
“I will of course arrive in front of you going off like a Cacophonous Catherine Wheel of Chat, armed with hundreds of tall tales to tell many complete with proof from my family picture album to stop you thinking I am simply raving. I’ve been at this showman racket a full 40 years now my friends – there is truly much to discuss and plenty to be held to account for.
“If you don’t show up I’m going to do it in your local theatre anyway. So you may as well come. Why should the ushers have all the fun?”
