THERE is a chance to enjoy an intimate evening with John Challis, one of the nation's greatest comedy actors - best known as Boycie in BBC1's Only Fools and Horses - when he comes to the Cotswold Playhouse in Stroud next month.

In this one-off show the national treasure will reveal secrets from the set with stories and anecdotes from his dazzling career. Having worked with some of the biggest names in show business, he'll be spilling the beans about Only Fools and Horses co-stars like Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst and friends and fellow performers like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Oliver Reed, George Best. He’ll also recall tales from his time in Dr Who, Coronation Street and other TV classics.

The show also celebrates the launch of the second volume of Challis' autobiography, Being Boycie, and Mr Challis will sign copies during the interval and after his performance.

The event takes place on September 6, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets, £15 and £13 concs.
