Sooty sweeps into town

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

Hamil­ton Town House will be taken over by a fly­ing car, a singing uni­corn and even a lev­i­tat­ing sausage when Sooty makes an ap­pear­ance.

The chil­dren’s favourite, who cel­e­brated his 70th birth­day last year, will be joined by Sweep and Soo for the Sooty’s Magic Show tour, which kicks off next month.

And the trio will be joined by TV pal Richard Cadell for the brand new theatre tour, swing­ing in to the Town House on Fri­day, April 12. Sooty was very busy in 2018. To mark 70 years of en­ter­tain­ing chil­dren, he headed back to Black­pool North Pier, where he was dis­cov­ered, to host a free birth­day party and cel­e­brate in style.

The Black­pool bash also in­cluded a spe­cial live per­for­mance of The Sooty Show, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the lo­cal hospice, Donna’s Dream­house, NHS Teach­ing Hospi­tal Black­pool and Sooty’s long-stand­ing char­ity part­ner, The Royal Na­tional In­sti­tute of Blind Peo­ple.

The cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­ued into Septem­ber with Sooty and the gang’s an­nounce­ment of a brand-new tele­vi­sion se­ries on ITVBE.

This marked 50 years since The Sooty Show first ap­peared on ITV in 1968!

The new episodes saw Sooty, Sweep and Soo en­joy­ing a whole host of dif­fer­ent ad­ven­tures and in­cluded top celebrity cameos from Peter An­dre, Lisa Ri­ley, John Chal­lis and Steps star Faye Tozer.

And the year was rounded off in No­vem­ber with a per­for­mance to help HRH Prince Charles cel­e­brate his own 70th birth­day at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium as part of ITV’S ‘We Are Most Amused and Amazed’ - an ex­cit­ing cel­e­bra­tion of com­edy and magic for Prince Charles, in aid of The Prince’s Trust Char­ity.

With spe­cial guests, cir­cus star Michael Jor­dan and the ul­tra­vi­o­let spe­cial­i­ties of Fan­tasie de la Nuit, Sooty’s Magic Show is set to be a spec­tac­u­lar treat for the whole fam­ily and even in­cludes a chance to meet Richard and Sooty af­ter the show!

There will be two shows at the Town House on April 12 – at 11am and 2.30pm.
