An Evening With Su Pollard Heads To Palace In June

The wonderfully zany and outrageous actress is coming to Mansfield Palace Theatre on Tuesday 21 June.

Stories, stand up and songs, followed by a candid and hilarious Q and A session with the audience…

Su Pollard shows once again why she is a national treasure in the feel good show of 2022, Ooh, and another thing. 

Su Pollard’s interest in acting began at the age of six when she played an angel in a school nativity play.

She attended Berridge Road School, Hyson Green and Peveril Bilateral School, Robin's Wood Road (now Nottingham Girls’ Academy).

After leaving school at 16, she got a job at the Tennant Rubber Company in Carlton as a shorthand typist and began singing in working men’s clubs and at charity shows to get herself noticed. 

Following an apprenticeship at the Arts Theatre in Nottingham, Pollard appeared on Opportunity Knocks in 1974 and came second to a singing Jack Russell! She then started appearing in many West End musicals including Godspell, Big Sin City, Grease and Oh, Mr Porter! 

In 1979, Pollard was chosen by the BBC to play Flo in a new sitcom called Two Up, Two Down with Paul Nicholas. However, this lasted only one series.

The following year, Pollard landed the role of chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw in Hi-de-Hi! She continued in this role until the programme's end in 1988, by which time she had become a household name. 

Shortly after Hi-de-Hi! had ended, the writers  chose Pollard to star as Ivy Teasdale in their new sitcom You Rang, M’Lord?, which starred her Hi-de-Hi! co-stars Paul Shane and Jeffrey Hollands.. 

From 1989 to 1990, Pollard's distinctive voice voiced the lead character in the BBC children’s television series, Penny Crayon, with parents and grandparents up and down the country instantly recognising her voice. 

Most recently, Su became a semi Finalist on Celebrity Masterchef on BBC1 as part of their 2021 series.

Locally, she is best remembered for appearing at Mansfield Palace Theatre in Ha Ha! Hood opposite comedy legends Cannon and Ball in, and as the Wicked Queen in the Snow White pantomime in 2006/07.
