Don't miss Pam Ayres at the Shanklin Theatre

As one of the funniest women to have emerged from the 21st century, the chance to see Pam Ayres live should not be turned down by anyone.

Since establishing her celebrity status after her appearance on TV talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1975, world-loved poet Ayres has starred in countless television and radio shows, embarked on a one-woman tour and even performed in front of the Queen.

Now, the broadcaster and entertainer is taking her latest production to venues all over the UK, with a date at the Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight on October 31st added to the bill.

She is touring to mark the release of her new book of poetry - You Made Me Late Again! - which is coming out on Thursday (September 26th) and features more than brilliant 50 pieces.

A number of unpublished poems will be included in the book, as well as favourites from her stage shows such as Tippy Tappy Feet and The Make-Up Lady.

Fans who attend the Shanklin Theatre date should wait around afterwards for an exclusive book-signing session due to follow the gig, where they will be able to ask the comedian any burning questions about her work.

It is a great way for families holidaying on the island to do something together that's both fun and indoors, as when the gig comes around it's likely the weather outside will be much cooler.

Admission costs £22.50, and considering Ayres is one of Britain's most cherished comedians and poets, this price is very decent. Tickets are being snapped up quickly however, so buy yours as soon as possible to avoid disappointment nearer the time.

Ayres receives sparkling reviews from critics wherever she goes, with the Yorkshire Press claiming in March last year that "she treats the audience like a huge roomful of friends", following a date at the Grand Opera House in York.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801640774-ADNFCR
