Tattyfilarious tea for Sir Ken Dodd!

THE Squire of Knotty Ash is to be honoured with a special civic lunch, at Liverpool Town Hall, on his 90th Birthday. On Wednesday, 8 November 2017, Sir Ken Dodd, who is a Freeman of the City, will be treated to a rendition of his famous hit 'Happiness' by pupils from Knotty Ash Primary School, and children from Trinity Primary School will entertain him with their favourite jokes. A special Doddy themed afternoon tea will be served; including sandwiches, made fresh from the Jam Butty Mines and Diddy Pies! Sir Ken will also be presented with a giant Birthday card filled with goodwill messages from local people; simply email and put "Ken Dodd" in the subject line, by Tuesday, 7 November 2017.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said:- "To borrow a line from Sir Ken, how tickled we are to be honouring him on the very special occasion of his 90th Birthday. He has been entertaining the nation for an incredible 65 years, and while other people of his vintage are now putting their feet up, he is still performing across the country with an energy and enthusiasm that is truly age defying. He is the 'King of Comedy' and the 'Master of Mirth,' a 1 off national treasure, the likes of which we have never seen before, and never will again. It is right and proper that we thank him for a lifetime of making people laugh." Sir Ken is proud to be honoured with a civic lunch on his 90th Birthday in his home City. He said:- "I have travelled all over the world, but I have yet to visit any place to compare with Merseyside. It has such a rich diversity of creative talents in music, the arts and especially humour. The people are blessed with kindness, generosity and tremendous energy and drive."
