Lancashire Hotpots get the whole crowd off the ground on brand new tour

A sensational comedy group MUSICAL raised the roof at the Forum.

The Lancashire Hotpots visited the Barrow venue on their ‘Chips & Giggles’ tour on Saturday – and got the whole crowd dancing.

From Glastonbury Festival to writing jingles for Holland’s Pies, the Lancashire Hotpots have been entertaining the nation since 2007 with comedic songs about fried teas, mobility scooters and how to get your own sweets at the cinema.

EVENT: Lancashire Hotpots raise the roof at The Forum, Barrow

The quintet – featuring Bernard Thresher on vocals and guitar, Dickie Ticker on melodica and hand percussion, Bob Wriggles on bass, Billy McCartney on keyboards and drummer Kenny Body – have been regular visitors to the area since forming there. almost ten years ago.

Dickie Tricker said: “A fantastic time was had for the Lancashire hotpots show at the Forum on Saturday night by the public and the band. The event was just shy and the crowded theater had a blast.

“One of the hallmarks of a Hotpots show is audience participation in various forms and we had the audience doing a lot of actions and they were in a really good voice as you can hear in the video.

“We had them dancing in the aisles and on the front of the stage too. We even had a conga that came out of the auditorium and into the foyer.

“All in all a fantastic night. At times like these, it’s just great to be able to party on a Saturday night and bring so much fun and fun into people’s lives.”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2007, the Lancashire Hotpots have become a true national sensation with a cavalcade of some of the dumbest and catchiest songs imaginable (Chippy Tea, I Fear Ikea and Egg, Sausage Chips & Beans for n’ cite just a few).

Lancashire Hotpots will also be bringing some fun to the main stage at this year’s Kendal Calling.
