Magic moments with Norman Wisdom

We had so many calls about national treasure Norman Wisdom today.

The late comedian spent a lot of time in Gloucestershire and when he was here made quite an impression! Here are just a few memories.

Marjorie in Kingsholm says that she saw Norman the 1960's when he came to the Regal in Gloucester...He was fabulous...his usual self, falling over everything!

Russ was walking in the Isle of Man when his dog started pulling the lead behind him...Russ turns around and is faced with Norman playing with the dog!

Mike Norman from Matson got lost once on the Isle of Mann and his friend told him to go and knock on a door to get instructions. He knocked on the door and Norman Wisdom answered the door! He invited him and did a series of impressions for him

Morris in Tirley remembers Norman staying at the Mory House Hotel on Parabolla Road in Cheltenham... he used to play the drums in a dingy little soldiers drinking club

Gene from Hucclecote...she and her husband saw Norman at Wembley before 1953...he was in an ice dance...she said he was hilarious!

Ray in Abbeydale met Norman at Bowden Hall when he toured boxing venues

If you can add to this list of cracking tales please post a comment or email me at
