Eric and Ern bring sunshine to the Corn Exchange
Relive the much-loved sketches of the iconic double act, Morecambe and Wise, in An Evening of Eric and Ern on Saturday 21 September at the Corn Exchange Newbury.
Full of Morecambe and Wise’s most-loved routines from Grieg’s Piano Concerto to Mr Memory, ‘Arsenal!’ along with songs, sketches and a musical guest, An Evening of Eric and Ern takes audiences back to a time when whole families would huddle round the television to share in the antics of the beloved double act.
Performed by the Olivier nominated duo Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens, who have been performing and writing as Eric and Ern for almost five years, and are the duo behind the critically acclaimed West End hit, Eric and Little Ern. They first met at drama school over thirty years ago and, when Jonty was asked to play Eric at a charity show he knew that Ian would be the perfect Ernie Wise. They have been performing together ever since. The show contains some of the first new writing in over thirty years with all scripts vetted and authorised by the estates of Morecambe and Wise.
An Evening of Eric and Ern is a show that hits all the right notes and will be at the Corn Exchange Newbury on Saturday 21 September at 7.45pm. Tickets £23.50.
