Brendan Healy’s My Little Theatre Tour
Brendan started his professional career as a musician, and has enjoyed prolonged musical success which include a period in legendary band, Lindisfarne, as well as many years fronting his own band at venues throughout the North East. He has worked with Mark Knopfler, John Miles and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson amongst others, and has written over 40 signature tunes for TV.
Equally, he is no stranger to the world of acting, both on stage and screen. On television, he presented ITV’s Razzmatazz in the seventies before going on to appear in the likes of Auf Weidersehen Pet, Crocodile Shoes, Badger and Coronation Street, whilst his theatre appearances include a season in London’s West End.
More recently, Brendan has become an integral part of North East Christmas tradition with his production company’s annual pantomimes, performed at The Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre on Westgate Road, Newcastle now in their 18th year.
As a comedian and after-dinner speaker, Brendan has performed not just all over the country, but all over the world, but his first love is always to play to home audiences.
His theatre tour kicks off in Alnwick at the Playhouse this Saturday, 8th September and will be followed by four further dates at Consett, Hexham, Blyth and Billingham.
