Grand Theatre summer star Joe Longthorne is hoping to be well enough to re-join his Thursday night show this week.

Last week’s performance of Joe and Roy’s Thursday Night Live starring Joe Longthorne and Roy Walker had to be cancelled – along with Joe’s planned stage appearance at his Celebrity Golf and Dinner event in his honour last Wednesday – after he was involved in a minor accident and suffered a suspected broken ankle.

Grand Theatre general manager Neil Thomson said: “It is unfortunate that Joe has had this accident to his ankle.

“The shows have been a marvellous success to date and it’s disappointing that Joe couldn’t appear last week but accidents do happen.”

There will now be an additional 4pm performance on Thursday November 1, Joe’s last planned summer season performance date.

Anyone with tickets for last Thursday’s show wishing to transfer to the 4pm performance on November 1, or any other performance date should contact the box office on (01253) 290190.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused,” said Mr Thomson.
