From the producers of the UK tours of The Goon
Show and Hancock's Half Hour comes another radio
comedy classic live on stage.
From 1965 to 1968 there wasn't a bigger radio programme in
Britain than the ground-breaking Round the Horne. For
half-an-hour every Sunday afternoon, audiences of up to 15 million
people would gather around the wireless to listen to Kenneth Horne
and his merry crew get up to all sorts of mischief.
With its infamous movie spoofs and hilarious regular
characters such as Rambling Sid Rumpo, Charles and Fiona, J.
Peasemold Gruntfuttock, and Julian and Sandy, Round the
Horne was one of the biggest and best radio comedy shows
of all time, and still endures today, 50 years on.
So come and take a step back in time to the BBC's Paris
Studios and experience this comedy classic live.
