Celebrating Sylvester McCoy, an actor probably best known now as the darkly clown-like 7th incarnation of The Doctor in the BBC TV series DOCTOR WHO, a role he has returned to several times, including in the reboot’s 2022 The Power of The Doctor episode.

He made his screen debut in 1965 playing silent characters in the cast of the Bristol-made VISION ON (which also kickstarted the careers of Aardman Animations founders Peter Lord and Dave Sproxton) and has been displaying his flair for physical/ visual comedy ever since, including in stage portrayals of Stan Laurel and Buster Keaton.

Join Matthew Sweet as he quizzes Sylvester about his career, comedy heroes and favourite stage and screen memories ahead of the handing over of the Slapstick Legacy Medal – honouring performers who keep slapstick traditions alive.

Event running approx  time  100mins

Following this event there will be an exclusive autograph signing opportunity with Sylvester McCoy .

Photographs will be for sale. (Cash and Card will be accepted )
