The show will be presented by Chris Tucker of Coastal Sounds.

Vince said: "I had the idea to put the show together using Grantham mates who are all brilliant entertainers in order to raise funds for the Lincolnshire flood victims. It’s at very short notice due to the Skegness Embassy Theatre availability.

"For Brian “Licorice” Locking and myself it’s of very special significance as it was at the original Skegness Embassy where Brian and I appeared with our pal Roy Clark as the Harmonica Vagabonds in 1955 in the Carrol Levis show. Carrol Levis was a 1950s Simon Cowell who ran talent competitions at theatres and made a fortune in the process.

"We appeared at the Embassy for a week in 1955 and all we received was our train fare from Grantham and our digs money. I think we came third."

Tickets are £10 and are available by calling 01754 474100 or go to www.embassytheatre.co.uk
