An Evening with Bill Maynard

Acting legend Bill Maynard is travelling to Borehamwood this July for a very special event. An Evening with Bill Maynard will give fans of classic British comedy and drama the chance to hear Bill reminisce about his long and impressive career on stage, television and in film.

Bill will share stories about how he got started in the business, his years working with Terry Scott on "Great Scott, It's Maynard" to television performances in the likes of Heartbeat, Coronation Street, The Gaffer, The Sweeney and Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggitt. On film, Bill stared in all four Confessions films with Robin Askwith, the big screen spin offs of both Bless This House and Man About The House and Adolf Hitler: My Part in his Downfall, with Jim Dale.

Bill also made five Carry On films. Starting off with his cameo as Mr Dreary in Carry On Loving, he returned for roles in Carry On Henry, Carry On At Your Convenience and as Freddy, a member of Sid's gang in Carry On Matron. Sadly Bill's scenes were cut from Carry On Abroad but he returned for a final Carry On with the gang in Dick in 1974.

Bill Maynard will be talking about his career and taking part in a Q&A as part of the Sitcom Classics Day on 7 July 2018, at 96 Shenley Road, Borehamwood - you can find out more about the venue here
