Local legend set to celebrate two years of Chuckle Street
Paul, who opened Chuckle Street at the family attraction in 2021, is set to make a welcome return to Rotherham to meet fans on Wednesday, August 16, at 1.30pm.
His fellow Chuckle Brother – fellow Rotherham comic Barry Elliot – passed away five years ago this month.
The duo's highly-popular ChuckleVision children's television series ran from 1987 to 2009, with the comedy siblings often using their “to me, to you” catchphrase in the near 300 episodes that were broadcast.
Paul said: “I can’t believe it is two years since I opened the fantastic Chuckle Street – a great celebration of mine and Barry’s journey through our Chuckle careers.
“I’m immensely proud that Gulliver’s Valley created the street of photos, bringing back some great memories and hosting a place in Rotherham that celebrates that history.”
The indoor area tells the story of how the brothers – also known for their support of Rotherham United – became one of the country’s most-loved double acts.
Paul added: “I’m looking forward to meeting families on the day, who are enjoying a day out at this amazing theme park, right on their doorstep in my home town of Rotherham.”
Gulliver’s Valley is the fourth and newest Gulliver’s resort in the UK and recently celebrated its third anniversary.
Julie Dalton, managing director at the family-run Gulliver’s Theme Parks and Resorts said: “We can’t wait to welcome Paul back to Gulliver’s Valley. Not only is he a Rotherham legend but our family audience love to see him at the park.
“We hope that lots of people will come along on the day and celebrate two years of Chuckle Street.”
