As fans of The Goodies will know, 2020 is a notable year

for everyone’s favourite surreal, anarchic, innovative and

always brilliant TV series, as it represents 50 years

since the show first aired on the BBC.

To mark this notable anniversary we’ve decided it’s time

the medium of an online poll!

Slapstick Festival – Laughter in Lockdown

Slapstick Festival – Laughter in Lockdown

The Slapstick festival are hosting a Laughter in Lock down.  This will now be permanent place here for the Goodies and Slapstick Festival. 

From the Slapstick website….

In recognition of the unique circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment with the ongoing C-19 pandemic, Slapstick have taken the decision to try to make a small difference in the only way we know how – by bringing some laughter into your lives. To this end, from Thursday this week we’ll be sharing previously unreleased footage captured during a selection of the unique events we’ve staged over the past decade featuring, one show every week.

The LAUGHTER IN LOCKDOWN roll-out will start at 10am on Thursday 9 April with film from what is believed to be the last on-stage ‘in conversation’ by Eric Sykes CBE, a comedy writer and radio, film, TV and stage performer who worked with a Who’s Who of stars during his 50 years plus career.

Discussion and Q&A with Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden

The Goodies join us to discuss their fantastic legacy and relive some of the comedy magic.

Fifty years ago, three comedy talents – Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie – came together to unleash a wave of mayhem in The Goodies, a fast-paced mélange of surreal ideas, slapstick and film trickery that resulted in a colourful ‘live-action cartoon’ that became a much-loved viewer favourite. We’re pleased to welcome Brooke-Taylor, Garden and Oddie to the BFI stage to celebrate this golden anniversary.

Tickets are available to non BFI Members from 10th March and can be booked here..
