Join us and special guest speaker, St Helens’ very own comedian and actor, Johnny Vegas. Known for his roles in Benidorm, BBC Dickens Adaptations and the PG tips ads, Johnny Vegas has become one of Britain’s best-loved comic actors.

But before he came to fame, Johnny Vegas attended Catholic boarding-school St Joseph’s College to train for the priesthood. Feeling homesick, he returned home after just four terms.

He later went on to graduate from Middlesex University with a degree in art and ceramics before returning home and taking several short-term jobs.

Between 1994-1997 he became a member of comedy performance group Cluub Zarathustra before making his first TV debut in 1996.
