‘Parky’ to appear at Darlington Hippodrome

Sir Michael Parkinson is to embark on a seven-date tour across the North of England including an evening at Darlington Hippodrome on Sunday, February 9, next year.

An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson will celebrate the life and career of a man who has interviewed over 2,000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries.

From Mohammad Ali to Brian Clough, Madonna to Orson Welles, John Lennon to Fred Astaire and Mel Gibson to Meg Ryan, ‘Parky’ has interviewed everybody who’s anybody during a career spanning more than 60 years.

In conversation with his son Mike and sharing highlights from the Parkinson archive, this is a unique opportunity to get an intimate, entertaining and informative look at his remarkable journey, from a pit village in Yorkshire to the top of those famous stairs whilst reliving the best moments from a show that for many defined their Saturday night.

“I am delighted to be bringing this tour to my neck of the woods, and look forward to seeing audiences at a theatre near them,” said Parkinson.
