Showbiz legends were in abundance at the Regents Park Marriott Hotel in Swiss Cottage on Saturday 16th November, when the Heritage Foundation paid special tribute to actor and comedian Bernard Cribbins OBE on achieving 70 years in the business. Best known for narrating The Wombles TV series; his appearances in three Carry On films; two hit records (‘Right Said Fred’ and ‘Hole In The Ground’) plus appearances in Doctor Who, Jackanory, Fawlty Towers, Wrong Arm Of The Law and many other TV programmes and feature films, Cribbins (84) was delighted to receive recognition from his peers at the Heritage Foundation’s annual Christmas Lunch. The glitzy event (complete with crackers, turkey & mince pies) concluded with a full set by the Trembling Wilburys, whose singers Glen Knowler (as George Harrison) and Dave Collison (as Roy Orbison) are seen flanking Cribbins. This turned out to be one of our best performances yet, and a great warm-up for our special Xmas party night at Dingwalls in Camden on December 3rd. Continue reading
