Josephine Tewson brings her one-woman show Still Keeping Up Appearances to Worthing’s the Connaught Studio, on Tuesday, April 21.

Best known as Hyacinth Bucket’s long-suffering neighbour Elizabeth in Keeping Up Appearances and as the lustful librarian, Miss Davenport, in Last of the Summer Wine, Josephine Tewson chats about her 50-year career.

She shares tales from a lifetime in showbusiness in an irreverent evening of chat and memories. She talks about her early years in British theatre, the move into television comedy and her ill-fated, but hilarious, marriage to Leonard Rossiter.

Josephine also invites you to join her for an intimate after-show cream tea in Fraser’s Bar, with limited tickets available.

Josephine’s career has seen her star in many television programmes and become one of Britain’s most-loved comedy actresses.

In the 1960s, as well as guest roles in popular series such as Z Cars and The Champions, Josephine became a regular ‘straight man’ on The Charlie Drake Show.

From 1968, she featured in comedy sketches with Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker in Frost on Sunday, which led to further collaborations, including appearing on The Two Ronnies sketch show.

Meanwhile, Josephine also appeared as Edna Hawkins in the first six series of the ITV sitcom Shelley before, in 1990, taking on what would become her most fondly-remembered role, Elizabeth, in Keeping Up Appearances.

Her many other television appearances include Coronation Street, Heartbeat, Holby City, Lewis and Doctors.
