Laurel & Hardy visit HOLYHEAD

Cousins Bud and Stephen Hodgson from Holyhead first posed as their heroes Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in a fancy dress party in 1990 They then they joined the "Homebrew Players" of Holyhead who gave annual performances in aid of the CLIC Charity for children with Leukaemia, and entertained and delighted people all over Anglesey with their act. Steve and Bud were invited to attend a star-studded premier of the 70th anniversary of Laurel & Hardy's first film "Should Married Men Go Home" in Leicester Square in London, and mingled with the likes of Tamara Beck and Frank Skinner. At the premier, they met Stan Laurel's son-in-law Tony Hawes who said that he'd never seen such a good likeness to the famous Laurel and Hardy as Bud and Stephen! More recently they were invited to go to Ireland to take part in the 4th July celebrations, and they have also been invited to a Laurel & Hardy convention in Seattle in Washington, U.S.A.
