ROUND THE HORNE
Grand Opera House York- Thursday 27 January 2022
From 1965 to 1968 there wasn’t a bigger radio programme in Britain than the ground-breaking Round the Horne. For half an hour every Sunday afternoon, audiences of up to 15 million people would gather around the wireless to listen to Kenneth Horne and his merry crew get up to all sorts of mischief.
With its famous movie spoofs and hilarious regular characters such as Rambling Sid Rumpo, Charles and Fiona, J. Peasemold Gruntfuttock, and Julia and Sandy, Round The Horne was one of the biggest and best radio comedy shows of all time, and still endures today, 50 years on.
So come and take a step back in time to the BBC’s Paris studios and experience this comedy classic live.
