Lancashire Folk Comedy and Music from Favourite Duo

Lancashire favourites, Norman Prince and Paul Johnston return to the Blackburn Empire Theatre on Friday 20th October.

Their show is two jam-packed hours of songs and humour from their famous comedy & folk backgrounds.

Norman was the front-man and leader of the country’s top comedy folk group, The Houghton Weavers, for over 24 years and his humour and tales were a major part of the Weavers success over many years. Their TV series ‘Sit Thi Deawn’ is still the definitive example of North West life! He left the band 17 years ago and is now one of the country’s top ‘after-dinner’ speakers, speaking at venues as far apart as Aberdeen to The Dorchester Hotel, London, and St Helier in Jersey.

Paul was a member of the ‘Legendary’ folk group – The Fivepenny Piece. He currently performs with his own group ‘Cracked Flag’ and, like Norman, has amassed a great knowledge of songs and stories.

Together they guarantee an evening of fun and laughter unsurpassed in the theatres of today. It’s a traditional Lancashire night out!

Thwaites Empire Theatre on Friday 20th October, 2017 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12. Available online here or from the Booking Office in person or by phone (Monday to Saturday 10am to 12:30pm) 01254 685 500.
