Summer Winos - Live 2018

Two Men, 295 Episodes, One Obsession…

When does a fondness for a TV show become an obsession? Andrew and Bob’s gentle love of Last of the Summer Wine quickly become a quest to watch all 295 episodes. In order. While visiting locations. Making films. Meeting the cast. Boozing with the writer. And, ultimately, turning their passion into a Fringe show. But they’re not obsessed. Are they?

Yes, you heard it right… seven years after embarking on the Summer Winos quest, Andrew and Bob are planning to take to the stage to explain just how Last of the Summer Wine has taken over their lives, and what YOU can learn from the world’s longest-running sitcom!

There will be dressing up, audience participation, overly-earnest reminiscing, and – brace yourself – kazoos. The show is running at the Edinburgh Festival, as part of the PBH Free Fringe, and will be staged at Bannermans Bar at 212 Cowgate, Edinburgh, from 12th-17th August 2018. Before then, there are special preview shows at the Waiting Room in Eaglescliffie, Stockton-on-Tees (their local!) on 29th July, and at Sid’s Cafe, Holmfirth (where else?) on 5th August. All performances are free to enter.

So come and say hello! Will YOU be their Foggy?


NB The capacities of the Waiting Room and Sid’s Cafe are pretty limited. The Waiting Room holds about 60 people, and Sid’s Cafe about 30… if you’re planning to come to either show, please give them a call on the numbers below and reserve a seat. Thanks!

    I would like to go to 5th August at Holmfirth.
    Tried telephoning yesterday for the staff member not to know about it. This morning no answer.

    Any suggestions?

      Hi Rodney,

      If you still haven’t had any luck, please let us know. All the staff should be aware of the arrangements by now, but if anybody has any trouble please ask to leave a note for Laura.

    Please do one in Stockport, Withington or Manchester? I can help arrange a show in this area if needs be?

      Hi Jack,

      If we can get through the Fringe without killing each other we’d be happy to look in to further shows!
