Those Were The Days, 2003

BLACKPOOL 2003-2005

Andy's first season at the Winter Gardens Pavilion, Blackpool was in Those Were The Days for the summer of 2003. The show was produced by Duggie Chapman and starred comedian Stu Francis of Crackerjack fame. Also on the bill were piano entertainer Mike Terry, vocalist Beryl Johnson and song/dance duo Castle and King. Andy's performance won him the Blackpool's 'Best New Act 2003' award, and he was immediately engaged for another season the following year.

The 2004 show was We'll Meet Again, staged to commemorate the anniversary of D-Day. For this show, Andy was honoured to be awarded the title 'Top Solo Artist 2004' chosen from all the performers at the major Blackpool venues including the world famous Tower Circus and the Opera House.

We'll Meet Again was so successful with the Blackpool holidaymakers that it returned for another 16-week season in the summer of 2005.
