This brand new national touring stage production brings Linda’s comic genius back to life and was crafted from the adaptation of her biography Driving Miss Smith, written by her partner of 23 years, Warren Lakin. Each performance features words and musical contributions from her friends and a host of special guests.

Aside from a lively narrative, performers will be giving renditions of Linda’s fantastically funny material drawn from her professional stage, radio and TV career. The show features carefully selected cuts of Linda’s comedy in audio and visual clips from shows such as News Quiz, Just a Minute, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and Have I Got News for You.

A donation of £1 will be made to Ovarian Cancer Action from every ticket sold.

Next year’s programme of exhibitions, theatre, music, words and street entertainment is also filling up with a host of big names and new productions.

This time around, the Festival will be celebrating the 2008 Year of Language in words, music and art with special events collected under the theme of Many Voices.

The 2008 Festival will run from Saturday, June 28 to Sunday, July 13.
