Oldies but Goodies

Cult heroes head for Edinburgh

The Goodies are to perform live at this year’s Edinburgh Festival.

Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden will follow the success of a recent Australian tour will a full run of dates at the Assembly Rooms.

However, Bill Oddie will not be appearing on stage, as he will be tied up with filming commitments. But he has recorded video inserts for the show.

The Australian shows saw the Goodies reminisce about the making of their cult TV classic, interspersed with videos of their greatest hits

The 90-minute show will be on at the venue’s Music Hall at 5.30pm from August 4 to 27.

The Goodies are not the only act for nostalgia buffs at this year’s Fringe. The Krankies and Bernie Clifton have both announced one-off dates.

Tickets for all the shows will go on sale once the Fringe programme is published on June 8.
