TOMMY Cannon, one half of the comic double act Cannon and Ball, was the special guest at a pub in Towyn last week.

The entertainer made an appearance on June 7 at Morton Arms, for an “intimate, uplifting evening” looking back at Cannon and Ball’s career.

Hosted by comedian Matt Grindley, the event featured stories, laughter and music, as well as an audience Q&A session.

Cannon received a standing ovation as he left, while the pub’s entertainment manager, Darren Howells, also got to perform comedy with him, before musician Alfie Benson brought the evening to a close.

Darren said: “We are planning on bringing Tommy Cannon back at some point in the future.

“Performing comedy with my hero was an honour!”

Special guests at Morton Arms in 2023 included Garry Pease (The Rod Stewart Experience), comedian Crissy Rock, and Ray Quinn (The X Factor, Dancing on Ice).

In October, one of the last original members of The Drifters, Ray Lewis, will be the special guest at the pub.

Tickets are on sale from the pub now.
