Pop along to Blacktown for a jolly good British show

IT will be a night of witty British comedy and nostalgic songs when A Pommie Night Out comes to Blacktown Workers Club on Saturday, January 18.

Show manager Sheila Lorraine said there would be audience participation, humour, costume changes and a singalong featuring songs like When You're Smiling, You Are My Sunshine, Hello Hello and Oh, You Beautiful Doll.

"I think they will love the show," Ms Lorraine said.

"The comedy is that old-fashioned British comedy rather than the new wave comedy that many people do not like.

"There will be lots of songs they will know."

More than 20 costumes are worn in the show, including World War II soldier uniforms.

"We knew someone who had costumes for films so we bought them," Ms Lorraine said.The show started touring in 2001 and has travelled around Australia, New Zealand, Britain and Malaysia.

The variety show, recently filmed for a new TV show due to be screened later this year, also won the award for Best Gold Coast Entertainment.

Ms Lorraine said after years of touring, the show still attracted people of all ages.

"I've had people say 'I've never laughed so much in my life'," she said.

"They always say laughter is the best medicine."

Tickets are $7.50 for members and $10.50 for visitors.
