The 52nd Royal Variety Performance held on 17th November 1980 in the presence of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, This year’s performance had particular significance as it marked Her Majesty the Queen Mothers 80th Birthday. The souvenir programmes were given to performers during the week of rehearsals before the main show. This programme was obtained by Bill Reeve the manager of Paul Squires one of the stars who is to perform in the main show. After the first couple of days rehearsing they were sitting in the stalls with other performers and Bruce Forsyth asked if any of them had their programmes and if they wanted him to get them signed for them, only 4 or 5 people actually had them with them and Bruce took them off around all of the dressing rooms to get them signed. Sometime later the programmes were returned with most the stars happy to sign, although Bruce Forsyth did explain that Danny Kaye would not sign as they would not let him in his dressing room! The programme also comes with original Running Order and Stage Production, Official Press release from London Palladium, original ticket, official backstage pass and official invitation to after show drinks and a congratulatory telegram from Billy Marsh to Paul Squires.
