ENJOY AN EVENING WITH FAMOUS ACTOR BRIAN BLESSED WHO HAS FAMILY LINKS WITH BRIGG
Brian Blessed - the famous actor with the booming voice and bushy beard whose family lived in Brigg during Victorian times - is to perform a one-man show in North Lincolnshire.
An Evening with Brian Blessed will be staged at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on September 5.
He came to Brigg a few years ago to record a TV programme about his ancestors, screened in the Who Do You Think You Are? series.
Brian's ancestors had a cottage in one of Brigg's town centre courtyards during the Victorian era.
In the programme he was seen looking round a similar one on Chapel Court, which has survived.
Brian caused quite a stir when he came to Brigg to film in the town centre for this programme.
Many folk were excited and surprised to see a famous figure.
Perhaps Brian will reveal more about his Brigg links when he stars at the Baths, on Doncaster Road, as part of a national tour that is now under way.
