Chance to share your memories of BarryPublished Thursday, 6th September 2018
Rotherham folk will be able to leave a special message in memory of much-loved entertainer Barry Chuckle.
Barry Elliott, famously known as Barry Chuckle, one half of the much loved entertainment duo the Chuckle Brothers, passed away in August 2018
Two “Memory Books” have been opened in Rotherham, where people are invited to leave their memories of Barry – including the laughs, the smiles and “to me to yous” as well as condolences.
The memory books will be available to sign at Clifton Park Museum and Rotherham Civic Theatre on Percy Street.
Cllr Sarah Allen, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Cleaner, Greener Communities said: “The Chuckle Brothers have always been very dear to many people in Rotherham, particularly the generation who grew up watching their antics on children’s television.
“The memory books will be here for people to record their memories of Barry until Christmas 2018 when they will become part of the collection at Rotherham Archives and Local Studies.”
Clifton Park Museum is open Monday to Fridays 10am - 5pm, Saturdays 9.30am - 5pm and (until the end of September) Sundays 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm. The Civic Theatre is open Mondays to Saturdays: 9.30 am – 4.45 pm (except bank holidays).
