Summer Winos LIVE


New Member
Hi everybody. I don't know why it never occurred to me to post this on the forum (I spend far too much time on Facebook, I suppose!), but Bob Fischer and I are currently touring England with Summer Winos, a revised version of the Last of the Summer Wine tribute we took to the 2018 Edinburgh Festival. This is not a recreation of Last of the Summer Wine episodes, but is instead a celebration of the show that features games, silliness, a bit of dressing up, and even a touch of music. We've got lots more dates coming up and so far it's been lovely to meet fellow fans in the bar afterwards!

Our show in Halifax on the 25th of June is a special one, as our usual daftness will be preceded by a screening of the episode "The Man From Oswestry". We'd love to see some of you there or anywhere we might happen to be heading.

Hambledon Productions Presents…



with Andrew T. Smith and Bob Fischer
Two Men, Two Hundred and Ninety-Five Episodes, One Obsession…

When does a fondness for a TV show become an obsession? Andrew and Bob’s gentle love of Last of the Summer Wine quickly become a quest to watch all 295 episodes. In order. While visiting locations. Making films. Meeting the cast. Boozing with the writer. And, ultimately, turning their passion into a live stage show. But they’re not obsessed. Are they?

In August 2018, Andrew and Bob performed their show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to hundreds of appreciative Summer Wine fans. And now, fuelled only by cream scones and strong Yorkshire tea, they’re taking it out on the road. With dressing up, audience participation, overly-earnest reminiscing, and – brace yourself – kazoos, Andrew and Bob take to the stage to explain just how Last of the Summer Wine has taken over their lives, and what YOU can learn and love from the world’s longest-running sitcom!

Greets and Welcome to the fourms. :18:

Good to see other Last of the Summer Wine fans spreading the love of the show. Unfortunately, I live a bit too far away at the moment to catch any of your shows in person. There are some on here who have and said good things about ya. Sounds like a good time. I followed your vid to youtube and liked watching the others - you have another subscriber. Have you thought of recording any of your shows and putting them up online or DVD?

Appreciate, it's nearing the end of this tour, but I went to see this in London, and it's utterly superb! There was so much I didn't know about the series I discovered.

This is an absolute must for any Summer Wine fan, I hope there is going to more tours as I'll definitely be attending again if there is....
