Ewan’s on top form in show


Writer and actor Ewan Wardrop is to perform his one-man show Formby at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on July 26 and 27.

Performances take place at 7.30pm on both nights with an additional matinee from 2.30pm on Saturday, July 27.

Formby follows George Formby’s rise from awkward stable boy to one of Britain’s biggest stars.

In a unique one-man performance Ewan Wardrop plays the role of Formby, as well as all the key characters involved in this fascinating slice of his life.

Formby is a funny, touching and thoughtful look at the life of an essentially ordinary man with an extraordinary talent.

This sensational production, described as a ‘little stick of theatrical dynamite’ by one national critic, features many of Formby’s classic hits brilliantly recreated by the acting and musical skills of Ewan Wardrop, including Blackpool Rock, Leaning on a Lamp-post, When I’m Cleaning Windows, TT Races and many more.

George Formby was one of Britain’s biggest film and theatre stars in the 30s and 40s with numerous hit records and movies to his name.

Tickets are £14.25, available on 01332 255800.
