Sunday for Sammy has now become established as the high-water mark in the North East’s entertainment calendar. The 2008 event, staged at Newcastle City Hall on Sunday 8th February, featured a stellar cast of performers.
Actors Tim Healy, Kevin Whately, Timothy Spall and Christopher Fairbank resurrected their Auf Wiedersehen Pet characters yet again for a hilarious sketch set in Sherwood Forest and written by the shows creators, Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. Denise Welch, Charlie Hardwick and Angie Lonsdale performed a side-splitting piece celebrating the final voyage of the Tuxedo Princess and were joined by Zoë Tyler and Coleen Nolan in another, lampooning their popular TV show, Loose Women. The Geordie version is called Slack Lasses. Ex-Lindisfarne musicians Ray Jackson, Billy Mitchell and Ray Laidlaw rocked the City Hall with some magnificent music. Comedians Brendan Healy, Steve Womack and Peter Peverley had the audience in stitches. Young dancer Liam Mower reprised his show-stopping performance in the West End hit Billy Elliott and brought the house down.
