Legendary entertainers Cannon and Ball are set to perform at The Plowright Theatre in Scunthorpe later this year.

The Gainsborough Standard has team up with theatre bosses to offer two pairs of tickets each for the show on Sunday 10th November.

Tommy and Bobby have carved their careers from decades of performances in all different types of venues.

Their efforts paid off when they were at the top of their game.

In the 1980s no one could touch them.

They had a hit TV series on mainstream television, summer specials, Christmas specials, everyone wanted them, everyone loved them and they were everywhere you looked.

Good times followed, bad times followed, at the end of it all they found God and still to this day are a favourite act for families to fill theatres to time and time again.

They have had a whirlwind of a career and it’s not over yet, they are two of the most hardworking men in the country.

They deserve the loyal following that they can boast today.

Anyone who can remember the 80s will probably be able to name a favourite Cannon and Ball sketch.

Cannon and Ball will perform at The Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe on Sunday 10th November.

All tickets are £17.50 and available now by calling the box office on 0844 8542776 or visiting
