Event Description

Fifty years is a long time to follow your dream, and no one can take away the tremendous highs which come from working with stars like Jeremy Brett, Rob Lowe and Christian Bale. Stories from these and others form the basis of this talk. Random accounts of meetings with such half-forgotten stars like Giant Haystacks adorn this presentation and if there is time left, I might finish with a song. You have been warned.

Meet The Speaker, Jim

Jim was born into poverty during the second world war and has always followed his dream. Jim worked with Rod Steiger, Anthony Perkins, David Tennant, Jeremy Brett, Ray Winstone and American Superstar Rob Lowe. Having appeared in Coronation Street in every Decade that it has existed, Jim has filmed more than 50 episodes. From the back streets of Salford to sharing studio space with stars like Caroline Ahern has been a joy.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
