A Wee Blether With Gregor Fisher

This November Greenock's Beacon Arts Centre will host an exclusive evening with one of Scotland’s best-known actors, Gregor Fisher!

A Wee Blether With Gregor Fisher

About A Wee Blether With Gregor Fisher

‘In Conversation’ with director Nigel West, Gregor will take a trip through his childhood with adoptive parents in Neilston, via the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, to his first TV appearance, alongside Rikki Fulton, in Scotch and Wry in the late 1970s.

As well as chat and reminiscences about Rab C. Nesbitt, there are sure to be plenty of anecdotes of Gregor’s work alongside acting royalty, such as Al Pacino in The Merchant of Venice and Richard Burton in 1984, and his appearances in films such as White Mischief, Love Actually and the remake of Whisky Galore! Gregor also played Grandpa Potts in a tour of the stage musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Nigel West says: “I first worked with Gregor in 2007, when I directed a production of the stage musical The Wizard of Oz, and he played the Cowardly Lion. I am thrilled that I have finally persuaded him to sit down and recollect moments from his extraordinary childhood and career. Along with a few questions from the audience, it should make for a laughter-filled, spontaneous and ultimately surprising evening. ”

Gregor Fisher says: “I am not sure what I am letting myself in for here...”

Beacon Arts Centre is the only venue to host this event. This is your chance to eavesdrop on Gregor and Nigel’s wee blether – join them to see what comes up!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Wee Blether With Gregor Fisher are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
