Lady Crabtree’s 40th Anniversary Show


It’s a milestone year in showbusiness for our beloved Constance Lady Crabtree, and she’s having her biggest celebration right here at the UGT with some friends.

With her will be entertainer Cliff Bendall, magician Emma Lusion and singers Bourne Chorus. You too are invited to join her and – as likely one knows already – this cherished doyenne of ladies’ clubs and Women’s Institutes is ideally suited to the more mature audience.

Lady Crabtree

THE DOWAGER LADY CRABTREE is a comedy character performed by author & broadcaster PAUL JAMES since 1978.

“I don’t think we have ever had someone who made us laugh so much. The ladies had a wonderful time.”
Gill Bird, Cardiff Ladies’ Lunch Club

“The peals of laughter and the attention of the audience confirmed her huge success…an afternoon to savour.”
CommunityWise Ladies Club, Eastbourne

“So many people came up to me afterwards to say how much they had enjoyed your talk… a good laugh keeps you young!”
Valerie Winstone, Stratford-upon-Avon Ladies’ Lunch Club
