Spamalot, Aylesbury, 1 April 2011
This brass statue of Ronnie Barker, unveiled in September 2010 by his widow Joy, David Jason and Ronnie Corbett, keeps watch over the theatre's entrance. In the 1940s, Ronnie Barker joined the Manchester Repertory Company, based in Aylesbury.

Me with King Arthur (Phill Jupitus @jupitusphillip). He was the 6th actor I've seen playing the part of King Arthur. He played the role very well I thought.
Me with the Lady of the Lake (Julie Prenger @musicalmissy) who is the most hyperactive Lady of the Lake I've ever witnessed and I told her so! Wonderful voice!
Me with the very talented Graham MacDuff whom Harry (son) and I met back in 2007 backstage at the Palace Theatre when Spamalot was doing a run there. He recognised me immediately to my astonishment and asked how Harry was doing! In 2007, he was playing the part of Sir Galahad but now he is playing Sir Lancelot. He must be the longest serving member of the Spamalot team!
