Two legends of television, show-business and of the Royal Variety Performance come together in Des O’Connor And Jimmy Tarbuck: Live for one night only at Northampton’s Royal & Derngate on Sunday 17 September.

Having wowed audiences at the London Palladium, Des O’Connor joins Jimmy Tarbuck live on stage for this rare event where they will reminisce and entertain, accompanied by music and video.

In October 2015, Des and Jimmy performed on stage together for the very first time in Sunday Night At The London Palladium. The event was described by The Guardian as ‘a night of theatrical history to be remembered for many years to come’.

Des is one of only a handful of British entertainers to be acclaimed internationally on stage and screen. Since landing his first television series in the UK in 1963 he has starred in his own mainstream television show for over 45 years, longer than anyone anywhere in the world.

Jimmy has a career in comedy and television spanning more than 50 years and was awarded an OBE in 1994 for his services to comedy and charity.

This is a unique opportunity to see Des and Jimmy together, when they take to the Derngate stage on Sunday 17 September, at 7.30pm. Tickets – priced £27, £30 and £40* – can be booked by calling Box Office on 01604 624811 or by visiting
