Royal Variety History
”This is the best show of all”, said The Queen on the 1952 line-up. Tony Hancock’s sketch of a lieutenant-commander in the Royal Navy was aimed at and a hit with Prince Philip. At the first televised show in 1960 it was said of Sammy Davis Jr “in eight electrifying minutes this entertainer made the word ‘star’ seem inadequate”. The Beatles wowed in 1963. Judy Garland, Gene Kelly and The Supremes were among other guests. Since 2007 the Britain’s Got Talent winner appears. The donation to EABF is from telephone votes.
