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.

“I am looking forward to talking about the strange and remarkable things that the audience never see.

More Tea Vicar visits Wisbech’s Angles Theatre on Saturday April 16; performance at 3pm.

Tickets, £12 (general) or £10 (concessions) can be purchased by calling 01945 47 44 47 or from
