One of the most celebrated comedy duos in British television history will be remembered in a show which comes to Northamptonshire fresh from a season in the West End.

A homage to the comedic talent of Morecambe and Wise, Eric And Little Ern, is touring the UK this spring and will be coming to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate on Saturday at 7.45pm and to The Core at Corby Cube on Thursday, February 13 at 7.30pm.

The production brings back memories of a bygone era, recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie’s television and stage performances through the use of classic sketches.

Newly extended from its hour-long Edinburgh format, the script explores the dynamic that made them Britain’s most popular double act at the time.

A spokesman for the show said: “Producers were granted rare permission by Eddie Braben to feature favourite moments from his writing, shortly before his untimely death in 2013.”

Tickets for Eric And Little Ern cost £16 in Northampton and start from £15.50 in Corby. To book, call the Royal & Derngate box office on 01604 624811 or The Core ticket line on 01536 470470.
