Bobby Crush is the headliner as traditional seaside variety returns to Bognor Regis this summer in The Summer Variety Show at the Regis Centre from Thursday to Saturday, August 25-27.

Spokeswoman Hazel Latus said: “Expect a programme of top acts including professional singers, dance groups, a live swing band, comedy and more. Headlining is the musical sensation Bobby Crush. Famous in the UK for almost 40 years, Bobby is primarily known as a pianist but also as a songwriter, broadcaster, actor and TV presenter.

“From his six winning appearances on TV’s Opportunity Knocks as a teenager through to his three seasons at the London Palladium, numerous gold and silver discs, starring roles in four musicals and appearances for various members of the Royal Family, Bobby remains one of the UK’s favourite musicians.

“He has recently starred as show business legend Liberace in the hit play Liberace, Live from Heaven in London’s West End and has just returned from a 32-date tour of New Zealand with the same show. He can also be seen on ITVs top comedy Benidorm as singing teacher Billy Sparkle.”

Hazel added: “The show also features comedian Paul James. Paul is outstanding and has been performing comedy for over 45 years. He is known in the business as the comedians’ comedian and is the resident funny man at London’s Brick Lane Music Hall. In a show that harks back to the glory days of summer at the seaside, this top-class variety performance will showcase the best in professional and local talent.”

Tickets can be booked via the Regis Centre box office on 01243 861010 or online at www.regiscentre.co.uk where the venue’s full programme of events can be found.
