Having delighted audiences across the globe for the past decade, the Rolls Royce of Flanders
and Swann shows returns!
Multi award-winning comedian Tim FitzHigham and BBC Radio 4 musical maestro Duncan Walsh Atkins starch their beards and trim their dinner jackets, ready to bring you the wit and wordplay of those ingenious comedy songsmiths, Michael Flanders and Donald Swann.
Lifelong fans and the uninitiated alike will delight to see the boys breathe new life into the much-loved words and music of F&S, including all the classics, The Hippopotamus (Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud), The Gnu, The Gas Man Cometh and many more – plus a few hidden gems along the way!
Tim FitzHigham is a Perrier nominated and award winning comedian who has performed on BBC Radio 1, 2, 4 and 5, toured lots and appeared in many films both in the UK and Europe. He is about to be seen in Channel 4’s Time Team. Duncan Walsh Atkins is a stalwart of BBC Radio 4, runs a busy London music studio, has released an album Taste the Rain and has also toured lots. They have toured the UK together before in Noel Coward's Words and Music - a gala evening of satire, song and stiff upper lips.
