Radio soap star to draw crowds.

RADIO actor Norman Painting will deliver the Nuneaton Society's annual Mike Palladino Memorial Lecture this year.

He plays the role of Phil Archer in the long-running BBC Radio 4 soap The Archers.

Organisers of the lecture are anticipating a huge demand for tickets. Last year's lecture was given by Nuneaton-born film director Ken Loach and every ticket was snapped up.

Peter Lee, chairman of the Nuneaton Society, said: "Norman Painting is 80 this year so this is a special occasion for him and the people of Nuneaton.

"Norman's father was a signalman at Nuneaton and the family lived in Attleborough for many years.

"Due to the great popularity of the Ken Loach talk last year I urge anyone interested in hearing Norman to contact me straight away.

"If the Ken Loach lecture is an example, there will be great demand for tickets."

The lecture will be delivered on Friday, September 3.

People can contact Mr Lee for tickets by phoning 024 7638 1090 or by writing to PO Box 2282, Nuneaton, CV11 6ZT, or by e.mailing nuneatonian2000@aol.com
