AN EVENING WITH NODDY HOLDER IN CONVERSATION WITH MARK RADCLIFFE
Genuine National Treasure, Godfather of Glam and thinking grandmother’s crumpet Noddy Holder looks back over a lifetime of towering achievements. Re-live the heady days of the pop-tastic seventies, eighties and nineties as Sir Nodward recalls all-conquering Top of the Pops appearances, endless world tours, epoch defining anthems, thespian triumphs, and glue-ing some mirrors onto a top hat to change the face of fashion forever.
From his early days on the West Midlands beat scene, including a stint as a roadie for Robert Plant, Nod charts his rise from shouty skinhead stomper to international pop-star, statesman, playboy, male model and philosopher. The proud recipient of an M.B.E., a knighthood is surely inevitability for the Father Christmas even adults can believe in.
Coaxing the anecdotal nuggets from the great man will be his close friend, confidante and personal dresser Mark Radcliffe. With a career spanning five decades the still astonishingly youthful Boltonion has written four books, released six albums, presented many TV programmes, most notably the BBC’s coverage of the Glastonbury Festival, and has presented shows on BBC Radios 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7. He remains optimistic of a call from 1xtra and the Asian Network so he’ll have ‘got the set’.
So, forget about Noddy goes to Toytown….now Noddy is coming to Redditch for a fun-packed evening packed with fun and lasting all evening.
