Pam’s career started – as did many other artists such as Billy Connolly, Mike Harding, Jasper Carrott, and Max Boyce – in the Folk Clubs of the early 1970s. Since those early days Pam has been making the nation laugh for almost five decades.  

Pam will be performing a selection of poems and stories, old and new, from her many books, including her latest, Pam Ayres on Animals.   

Recent TV appearances include her own series for Channel 5, The Cotswolds, This Morning, Countdown, and Would I Lie To You.

Pam’s Radio career includes six series of Ayres On The Air, many appearances on Just A Minute, and she is honoured to have appeared twice on Desert Island Discs.  

“I keep smiling, remembering moments performed by the incredible @PamAyres at @CurveLeicester last night.   Laughed and cried in equal measure. What a woman.” - BBC Radio Leicester

“Pam Ayres is absolutely essential to British humour, reminding us all to be tickled by the small joys and ridiculousness of everyday life. It’s not something poets often do – they’re usually too deep in love, death and angst.” - Mail on Sunday
