Perhaps you remember the Jack Douglas routine, Vince Hill’s Edelweiss timetravel ... or Malcolm, wearing a tigerskin leotard suspended on the high wire! Maybe you were hauled up onstage to ring Dottie’s bells, or did your small child sing a carol beautifully?

Maybe you remember a song, a joke, a funny incident, a clunking big mistake or a shared moment with your nearest and dearest... tell us about it and we will pass it onto Malcolm in a book of memories at the end of the run. His achievement is simply outstanding and we want to thank him with your help.
