Graham's pals hit the stage When Graham Walker (pictured) performed in last winter's Theatre Royal panto with Grumbleweeds comic partner Robin Colville, cancer's ravages were evident in his gaunt frame.
But when it was time to go on stage, Graham still ruled the stage with the craft of a true pro and a magnificent comic timing.
Sadly, Notts panto audiences saw Graham's finale - he lost his battle with cancer earlier this summer. But on Wednesday at the Theatre Royal, Robin and a cast of old pals that includes Brian Conley, Billy Pearce, Bernie Clifton (and ostrich), Stu Francis and Little and Large's Syd Little will get together to remember Graham in tribute show Once in a Lifetime.
Tickets are Pounds 20 and can be booked on trch.co.uk, 0115 989 5555 or in person at the Theatre Royal box office.

Tango star 'at home' Tango vocalist Martin Alvarado knows the NG postcode well.
Nottingham has become the Argentinian's home from home in Britain, so it's appropriate that on the day his new album launches, he'll be doing a free gig here.
On the day that new album Guitar Tango: Mas Alla is released, Martin will perform at the Nottingham Contemporary cafe-bar. If you like a bit of soulful seduction on a Monday night, get down for 9pm.

Otway - he did it his way What John Otway lacked in business sense, musical sense and quite possibly talent, he made up for in Quixotic self-belief and the ability to lead legions - well, smallish legions - of fans.
Now the British music legend is coming to Nottingham along with a fan-funded documentary about his eclectic life in rock. John will answer questions at the Broadway Cinema after a screening of Rock'n'Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie. The film screens at 8.30pm on Thursday.
