Radio 4 goes back to Hull And Back

New series for Lucy Beaumont sitcom

Radio 4 has ordered a third series of Lucy Beaumont’s sitcom To Hull And Back.

The comedian, who won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2012, will again star as Sophie, with Maureen Lipman as her mother Sheila.

In the new series, to be recorded next month, Sophie has qualified as a professional hair stylist so she can finally leave Hull and make her fortune in London – to the horror of  Sheila who plots to keep her at home, even when Sophie meets the man of her dreams... 

The semi-autobiographical sitcom started as pilot for Radio 2 in 2014, and has run for two series in 2015 and 2016. But a new series is especially timely as Hull is currently the UK’s City Of Culture.

New episodes are being recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre in Central on November 13 and 24 - see our free tickets page for details of how to apply to be in the studio audience.
