Never miss another 'Des O'Connor' show
Des O'Connor, Jimmy Tarbuck OBE
"Bringing their London Palladium show to Basingstoke, Des O'Connor joins Jimmy Tarbuck live on stage for this rare event!
Two heroes of television, show-business and of the Royal Variety Performance come together, accompanied by music and video to reminisce and entertain at The Anvil for one night only! In October 2015, Des and Jimmy performed on stage together for the very first time in Sunday Night at the London Palladium and the Guardian described this sell-out performance as "a night of theatrical history to be remembered for many years to come".
Don’t miss this chance to see Des and Jimmy together in what will be a night of theatrical history."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
First and foremost a stand-up comedian, evergreen TV and stage performer Des O'Connor also had a string of hit singles in the 1960s. For many years, his singing was famously - and affectionately - sent up by comedy legends Morecambe and Wise.
'Des is the ultimate professional. The man is everything that showbusiness was meant to be - he's talented, polished and immensely likeable and liked’ (Mail on Sunday)
'Down to earth, good looking and self deprecating, Des has got wit and charm in bundles. Great numbers by some of the great song writers all fell under Des’ spell as mirth and music filled the theatre. Cheeky, cheerful and just downright brilliant as an entertainer, Des showed us all what a true gentleman of show business he is and why he is loved by so many. He is still pulling them in, still has so much to give and leaves so many others in his wake. A delightful night out and one I hope will be repeated' (Paul Thomas: The West London Times).

Known affectionately as 'Tarby', he is one of Britain's favourite comics and has a television career spanning over forty years. Still a major hit on the comedy circuit after a varied career beginning as a Redcoat at Butlin's and then as compere at The London Palladium. Today, he can often be found either on the golf course or entertaining corporate audiences at gala dinners and award ceremonies with his quick wit and charismatic personality.
