EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, taken on the 25th of April in 1972, we see the legendary actor and comedian Norman Wisdom paying a visit to Hinckley. His purpose? To witness firsthand the progress being made with the town's first-ever theatre, which is ingeniously being developed within a disused hosiery factory. At the time of this photograph, Norman Wisdom was also preparing for his appearance in the highly anticipated "Spring Show" at Coventry Theatre. This snapshot captures him amidst a bustling era of entertainment and film during the 1970s. The image exudes an air of excitement as Wisdom explores the transformed space that will soon become a hub for artistic expression and cultural enrichment. With his trademark charm and wit, he undoubtedly left an indelible mark on all those involved in this ambitious project. This particular print serves as both a testament to Wisdom's enduring legacy as well as an emblematic representation of how communities can repurpose forgotten spaces into vibrant centers for creativity. It encapsulates not only one man's curiosity but also symbolizes hope and progress for Hinckley itself. Preserved by Memory Lane Prints from Coventry Telegraph, this image transports us back to a pivotal moment where artistry met innovation—a moment when dreams were realized within these walls once filled with knitting machines.
