Formby follows George Formby’s rise from awkward stable boy to one of Britain’s biggest stars. Performed by the multi-talented Ewan Wardrop–actor, dancer
and musical comedian–this is a funny, touching and thoughtful play about an ordinary man with an extraordinary talent.

The production features many of Formby’s classic hits performed live by Wardrop on the Ukulele, including: Blackpool Rock, Leaning On A Lamp-Post, When I’m
Cleaning Windows
, and Tt Races.
