Join Frank Williams for a hilarious afternoon of TV nostalgia when he visits the Angles Theatre next weekend.
When the news broke in April 2015 that a big screen Dad’s Army film was soon to go into production, veteran actor Frank Williams, who played Reverend Timothy Farthing in the original TV series, hoped for a cameo role in the film.
“I could play a very ancient retired vicar or maybe a bishop,” he told The Times.
He got the role and is the vicar in the new and popular film that was released two months ago.
After the filming Frank Williams started a UK tour with More Tea Vicar offering hilarious and enlightening anecdotes from his 50 year acting career - focussing on his involvement with the original 1968 to 1977 TV series.
