TWO actors from Last of the Summer Wine are returning to Holmfirth.
Ken Kitson and Louis Emerick – who play policemen Cooper and Walsh in the BBC comedy – are performing at the Civic Hall.
The pair will do an improvised show, taking their cues from the audience.
Ken said: “We’ll be playing the characters we play in Last of the Summer Wine but all the ideas will come from the audience. We thought we would start in Holmfirth and, if the show works, we’ll take it round the country.”
The show starts at 7.45pm on Saturday, June 6. Tickets costing £10 are available from Holmfirth Tourist Information Office on 01484 222 444.
Ken is hopeful that the BBC will commission a spin-off show based on the policemen characters.
He said: “We did a pilot programme last year which was well-received but unfortunately it went out on the same night as the Nadal-Federer Wimbledon final last year.
“The BBC are still talking about it because Last of the Summer Wine is on hold this year. This might be the best way to go, a spin-off involving some of the younger characters.”
Ken is a relative newcomer to the long-running show, having made his debut as recently as 1983.
