Update to The Goodies: Buster Keaton Classics & Rarities
In a slight change to this event, the brilliant Tim Brooke-Taylor will be joining virtually (onscreen) Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden (rather than in person). The celebrity trio will celebrate and illustrate their love of the comedy master Buster Keaton.
This will be a fantastic presentation of three of Buster's finest and funniest silent comedy shorts!
Not forgetting, there will also be live musical accompaniment from multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne
