Last of the Summer Wine comes to Pocklington next week

When does a fondness for a TV show become an obsession?

Andrew Smith and Bob Fischer’s gentle love for British television treasure Last of the Summer Wine quickly become a quest to watch all 295 episodes.

In order. While visiting locations. Making films. Meeting the cast. Boozing with the writer. And, ultimately, turning their passion into a show. But they’re not obsessed. Are they?

You can find out for yourselves when their critically acclaimed show Summer Winos comes to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Tuesday 16 April, 7.30pm.

PAC director Janet Farmer, said: “We are so looking forward to welcoming Hambledon Productions to PAC with their truly unique, funny, entertaining show that everyone, whether you loved the original TV series, or simply love live theatre, will thoroughly enjoy. We saw the show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and it’s no exaggeration to say this is going to be simply fantastic.”

Seven years after embarking on the Summer Winos quest, Andrew and Bob have taken to the stage to explain just how Last of the Summer Wine has taken over their lives, and what you can learn and love from the world’s longest-running sitcom.
