Star to appear at Wymondham Dad’s Army screening

Fans of Dad's Army are in for a treat when the former cinema in Wymondham hosts the first of this year's classic screenings.

The main feature at the Regal Experience will be the Dad's Army movie, made in 1970, but there will also be some rare footage of the Dad's Army team promoting road safety and an incident of the vicar in the series ending with his bicycle in a ditch, filmed by a cine-camera enthusiast who used to live at Wymondham.

And Frank Williams, who played the long-suffering vicar, will be making a personal appearance at the show at the Ex-Services Club, in Friarscroft Lane, which will take place at 2.30pm on Sunday, March 20.

The big screen version of Dad's Army was a spin-off from the highly popular television series and stars the likes of Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn, Bill Pertwee, Ian Lavender and James Beck.

Tickets are available from Maureen Dodman on 01953 605593 or Michael Armstrong on 01953 603246 and from the Wymondham Heritage Museum.
