Forget the North West, we’ll be heading down to the Wild Wild West for a night with comedy troubadours The Lancashire Hotpots.

But fear not, as they’re not leaving behind the classic tracks which have made them a local favourite, promising Chippy Tea and more at their Grand Theatre gig.

The group will be donning their stetsons and saddling up their horses for an evening of music, comedy and the Wild Wild West in new show A Fist Full of Scratchcards.

In a new twist for the Shopmobility Scooter singers, there’ll be Rootin’ Tootin’ Country and Western Hoedown.

This is the fourth year the lads from St Helens have headed to the Grand Theatre with their bill of topical comedy folk songs, and their 2015 return date takes place on Saturday, May 30.

A Grand Theatre spokesman said: “The Lancashire Hotpots have become the go-to band for those wanting a light-hearted view on life from a distinctly Northern angle.

“With rousing anthems such as He’s Turned Emo, The Baking Song and I Fear Ikea; the Hotpots have become something of a cult spectacle, touring the country with their own brilliant brand of parody songs and celebrating the culture of the North West.

“They have played at Glastonbury Festival, toured with Paddy McGuinness, written jingles for Holland’s Pies, recorded live studio sessions at BBC 6Music for avid Hotpots fan Steve Lamacq and even had a real ale named after them.

“Join Bernard, Bob, Kenny, Billy and Dickie at Blackpool Grand Theatre for a rambunctious riot of good time, singalonga fun.”

The Grand’s currently promoting a strong comedy line-up, with TV faces Milton Jones, Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr and last week’s announcement Tim Vine all scheduled for this year, as well as Ed Byrne early in 2016.
