This season’s comedy line-up has something for people of all ages, starting this evening with actress, author, singer and songwriter Su Pollard taking to the stage for her first ever An Evening with Su Pollard national tour.

Most fans will know Su from her television debut on Opportunity Knocks where she came runner-up to a singing Jack Russell dog. However, she is best known for playing Peggy in the BAFTA award-winning sitcom Hi-De-Hi – and she was even honoured to be the subject of This is Your Life in 1989.

Whilst the 72-year-old’s last television appearance came on Celebrity Masterchef, she boasts a long line of TV and film credits including:

You Rang M’Lord, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Benidorm Christmas Special, Run For Your Wife, Last Laugh In Vegas, Doctors, The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends, Little Robots and Claude.

During her illustrious 45-year-career, Su’s versatility in the acting industry has landed her some West End gigs, too, such as The Desert Song, Oh Mr Porter, Godspell, Me and My Girl and more – as well as taking her talents into the music world with hit singles like Starting Together, Carousel, Hey Mr. Producer, Among Friends and There's Something About You. Her album, Su Pollard - The Collection, also reached number two in the UK charts.

Fill your evening with laughs and entertainment by heading to the Assembly Rooms to watch Su discuss her exceptional career and take part in a Q&A session with the Nottingham-born icon.
