The Hawth Family Open Day, Sat 5 August
Enjoy a pony ‘tail’ or two and chat to Sue Jameson in person at The Hawth Family Open Day.
Actress Susan Jameson – Great Aunt Loretta in BBC’s Grandpa in my Pocket – has long been a familiar face on our TV screens. Now, in her latest guise as author Sue Jameson, she gives a glimpse of a great interest in her life: four special ponies, with four remarkable stories to tell.
Together with her husband actor James Bolam, Sue has rescued and cares for several ponies at their West Sussex home.
Susan will be at The Hawth’s Family Open Day from 2.30pm reading from Pony Tails, her first book, dedicated to ‘Rilla’, Susan’s own 34-inch high Shetland Pony.
To youngsters, the thrill of coming to The Hawth may well be the promise of meeting ‘Great Aunt Loretta’, for the rest of us there will be the opportunity of reliving a lifetime of favourite television moments with an actor who has appeared in, New Tricks, When The Boat Comes In and To Serve Them All My Days via Coronation Street, Midsomer Murders, Casualty, Holby City, Doctors, Heartbeat and Z Cars – to name just a few – Susan Jameson can tell a tale or two. Susan is happy to answer questions about her career in TV, radio and theatre.
