Unveiling of Victoria Wood statue in Bury starts town’s weekend of celebrations of performer and writer’s life and work
Family, friends and colleagues of the late comedian, actor and writer will gather in the town’s Library Gardens at 2pm to remove the covers from the statue, crafted by renowned artist Graham Ibbeson.
The event on Friday will also see The Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band playing a selection of Victoria’s music, including The Ballad of Barry and Freda and much-loved theme tunes from her shows.
The free Victoria Wood Exhibition, currently running at Bury Art Museum, will be open as usual on Friday afternoon and Saturday, and will be open specially on Sunday. It features hundreds of artefacts all owned by Victoria herself, including original scripts, song sheets, photos and costumes.Leave a comment
