A wonderful tribute to the late, great Sir Norman Wisdom from friends, colleagues and those who were inspired by one the most enduring characters in British comedy gather to celebrate his life.

Sir Norman Wisdom was a patron of Leicester Comedy Festival since the event started in 1994.
He performed a sell-out show at the festival in 2002 and we are honoured to host this tribute show, raising funds for charities supported by the great man.

The performance will include performances by:

Rick Wakeman (Grumpy Old Men, Yes)

Nicholas Parsons (Just A Minute, Sale of The Century)

Bruce Jones (Coronation Street's Les Battersby)

Glenn M Ford (Norman Wisdom Impersonator)

Jess Conrad (pop star, actor, entertainer)

Jeremy Spake (Airport, Toughest Jobs in Britain)

Profits from this show will support Roy Castle Fund in aid of Cancer Research UK, The Grand Order of Water Rats and Leicester Comedy Festival.
