AFTER the disappointment of cancelling events in the summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lymm Festival is bouncing back with two events in the coming weeks to raise everyone’s spirits.
First up is An Evening with Eddie the Eagle, the most unexpected of sporting heroes, who went from plasterer to ski jumper at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
Michael (Eddie the Eagle) Edwards brings us an entertaining, witty and inspirational talk about his overnight transformation into a ski-jump legend, followed by a Q&A session and chat with Lymm’s very own Father Michael Burgess. The event is at 8:00pm on Thursday 14th October at Lymm High School.
The ever-popular Festival Comedy Night returns on Wednesday 3rd November at Lymm Rugby Club with a line-up of award-winning stand-up comedians for an evening of adult humour. Justin Moorhouse (“Young Kenny” in Phoenix Nights) has toured the country as one of the UK’s leading stand-ups. Tom Wrigglesworth is a regular panel show guest and is now into his fifth series of “Tom Wrigglesworth’s Hang-ups” on BBC Radio 4. Jamie Hutchinson is a rising star of the circuit, winner of both Manchester and the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year awards in 2019. The show is compered by Rob Riley and will undoubtedly be a great night of laughs.
Tickets are £15 for each event and are on sale now at the Festival website, www.lymmfestival.org.uk, where you can find out more information about the events and venues.
