1987 saw the prestigious Alhambra Theatre open its doors to an array of big-name comics conjuring up the laughs in “Aladdin and His Wonderful lamp”.

Even set against the theatre’s 50-year panto tradition, Aladdin - which ran for 10 weeks - looked set to be the most spectacular yet.

Starring Hi-De-Hi chalet maid Peggy, alias Su Pollard as Aladdin, Maplins comic Paul Shane and Irish comedian Jimmy Cricket they were no shortage of one-liners.

After numerous rehearsals and a 10-week run, Su Pollard and cast got to let they down with a star studded after show party in February 1988.

Panto star Su Pollard popped into Bradford’s Hanson School, in February 1988, to say Hi-De-Hi and help them get off to a good start raising money in aid of Bradford’s War On Cancer, HansAid.

In 1986, the Hi-De-Hi star Su Pollard was right behind the Bradford’s Bouncing Back campaign. Meeting the Bradford Bear, she revealed that behind that zany, crazy exterior she hides a serious concern for the country.
