NORMAN WISDOM - A LIFETIME IN SHOWBUSINESS

20 March - 23 April

 

Whilst assembling my father's memorabilia, I found myself making an astonishing admission, I didn't realise just how big a star he was in the 1950's and 60's.

To be filming at Pinewood Studios during the day followed by two West End stage peformances at night meant a gruelling 18-hour day with only Sunday to recover. With seven films and six West End shows stretching throughout the 1950's, the pattern was set.

How appropriate that the exhibition will be at The Capitol, with my family living in West Chiltington for 22 years. Then of course, Jack Lane will be starring in Wisdom of a Fool, in effect bringing the exhibition to life.

I very much look forward to meeting you before the show to bring back some of those nostalgic memories, no doubt my father will be giving an approving nod.
