thumbnail_40 Years On - Jim DavidsonJim Davidson OBE is set to celebrate four decades in show business with a brand new stage play. 40 Years On opens on Thursday 27 October and will play 22 dates across the country.

Written and developed by Jim, 40 Years On is a heartfelt and hilarious autobiographical reflection on his legendary career.

Funny, poignant and at times searingly honest, 40 Years On looks back at Jim’s triumphs and tragedies, from his breakthrough on New Faces in 1976, through to winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2014. Jim will take audiences on a trip down memory lane, regaling them with never-before-heard stories, as he reminisces on the highs, lows and controversies of a unique life spent in the public eye.

Of 40 Years On Jim said; “I’m very much looking forward to sharing 40 Years On with audiences in theatres across the country. The piece is an honest and raw reflection of my life over the last 40 years both in the spotlight and personally. Much of my life has been lived out with the nation watching, so what better way to set the record straight and hear the stories but from my perspective and it in my own words.”
