AT THE CHIPPY
Victoria’s colleagues, TV producer and director Geoff Posner and Musical Director David Firman cook up a very special Q&A. Come along, bag yourself some chips and explore how Victoria, Geoff and David created such a witty and challenging musical number, then join in as we all learn the lyrics! Featuring our own Happy choir with Choir Director Beth Allen. Chips will be served!
David Firman was Victoria Wood’s arranger and Musical Director for her theatre show Good Fun, all three of Victoria’s BAFTA award-winning TV series’: Victoria Wood as Seen on TV, dinnerladies, Christmas with all the Trimmings, a TV special celebrating her personal BAFTA award, and the Victoria Wood special on Parkinson (BBC TV). For Victoria’s statue unveiling in Bury, David re-arranged Victoria’s Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let’s Do It) for performance by the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band.
Geoff Posner began working with Victoria in 1985, and went on to produce thirty-six of her programmes over 15 years including Victoria Wood as Seen on TV and Acorn Antiques, winning three BAFTAs and countless nominations along the way. Geoff has also directed and produced some of the UK’s best-loved comedy shows: Not the Nine O’Clock News, The Young Ones, Little Britain and many many more.
