HERE'S a lovely happy photo shared with us by Bill Macey of comedian Charlie Williams at Weymouth Pavilion in 1983.

The back stage crew are photographed with Charlie, who is in the centre, and seem delighted to be pictured with him.

Charlie was a footballer turned comedian. He was one of the first black players in English football after the Second World War and later became Britain's first well known black stand-up comedian. Yorkshire-born Charlie was known for the catch-phrase "me old flower". He experienced much mainstream success, especially on television where, from 1971, he enjoyed a long residency on Granada TV’s stand-up show The Comedians. He died on September 2, 2006, having suffered from Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

Bill, who took the photo, says he can name most of the crew in the photo. He added: "The pavilion now seems to have a new lease of life under people who really have an interest in what they are doing."

We'd love to hear from you if you part of the crew this photo and would also like to hear some of your pavilion memories, especially if you have a photo to share with us.
