Comic Heritage, the organisation that honours great entertainers past and present while raising funds for deserving causes, is holding a special tribute to the late comic genius and satirist Willie Rushton. A blue plaque will be unveiled at Mornington Crescent underground station, Camden, London NW1 - the significance of the location will not escape fans of the BBC Radio programme I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue of which Willie was, for so long, an integral part.
The plaque unveiling will be performed by Willie’s colleague in comedy Barry Cryer, and among those hoping to help him are Graeme Garden, Humphrey Lyttelton, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Colin Sell from the I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue team, aided and abetted by many other celebrities.
Following the ceremony there will be a lunch in aid of charity at the Marriott Hotel Regents Park, which will be attended by many of Willie’s family, friends and show business admirers.
Tickets to the lunch are £50 each including a three course meal with wine. For further information, or to make reservations, please contact email@example.com or telephone David Graham on 01494 714388.
