A presenter with BBC Radio Manchester and Lancashire and a regular on-screen reporter for BBC One’s “Inside Out”, Ted lives with his wife Judy in Lancashire but works all over the place. Come and join Ted for an evening of fun, laughter and OUTRAGEOUS NAME DROPPING. With images and anecdotes from over 4 decades in theatre, Radio, TV and Intensive care. Their is a chance to even mingle at the bar afterwards with Rossendale’s favourite son.
