Mike Harding is back on the road for a short theatre tour to mark the publication of his autobiography, The Adventures of the Crumpsall Kid. He will visit The Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe on Saturday, November 7.

Spend an evening in the company of the multi-talented Mike as he talks about growing up in Crumpsall in the 1950’s in the shadow of a dark satanic cream cracker factory and tells a shedload of hilarious tales from his early life – from first day at infant school to the dribbling, snuff taking barmpot who dominated his first year in grammar school.

He tells stories of the early 60’s when he played in skiffle groups and rock ‘n’ roll bands in the Town Halls, the ballrooms and the Working Men’s Clubs of the North of England before he discovered folk music and went on to become one of the nation’s favourite funny men.

This is life in the raw as seen through the eyes of the folk singer and songwriter, poet and playwright, comedian and broadcaster, fell-walker and fly-fisherman, described by Billy Connolly as the “funniest man in England”.

Tickets, priced £15 with concessions £14 (booking fee may apply, see website for details), go on sale this Friday morning from The Box Office. Call 0844 8542776 or visit Box Office for details.
