An Adult Evening with Billy Pearce 2020
There are few stages upon which Billy has not appeared. He’s broken Box Office records at a number of National Theatres including his Summer season at the Blackpool Grand Theatre, and his Christmas panto appearance at the Bradford Alhambra, where the Theatre took a bank busting £1.3 Million.
BRADFORD pantomime legend Billy Pearce has been honoured with a ‘Pride of Yorkshire’ award.
The much loved star of the stage was presented with the surprise accolade at Welcome to Yorkshire’s Y18 tourism conference. Held at the Alhambra Theatre, where Billy has been entertaining crowds for nearly two decades, there couldn’t have been a more fitting way to celebrate.
He said he was 'touched' by the gesture.
“I’m very proud, it’s going on the mantle shelf in my snug, right in the middle, and every time I walk past it my heart will skip a beat because I’m so very honoured,” he said.
“It’s so good to be flattered like that. I’m a proud Yorkshire man, so getting a Pride of Yorkshire Award is such a fantastic thing for me
Billy even trod the boards of Musical Theatre appearing alongside Jimmy Osmond in the smash hit musical ‘Boogie Nights’. He followed this by having a stint as narrator in the ‘Rocky Horror Show’.
A fine actor, Billy has also appeared on numerous shows, including ITV’s ‘Heartbeat’ and the award winning BBC drama ‘The Street’.
In October 2013 Billy was presented with the Arts and Entertainment Award at the Yorkshire Awards at a prestigious ceremony at The Hilton Hotel, Leeds. Previous recipients of the award include The Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Clare Teal, The Kaiser Chiefs, Chris Moyles, John Godber and Gaynor Faye.
