KNOWN for his brightly coloured trousers David Harper is a historian and antiques presenter on BBC TV. You’ll see him on Bargain Hunt, Antiques Road Trip and Flog It, plus he often appears on celebrity shows, like Through The Keyhole, Celebrity Eggheads and he was described as the worst ever contestant in the history of Celebrity Masterchef!

His first one man stand up tour ‘Unexpected Tales’ comes to Ilkley Playhouse on Sunday, January 26 at 7.30pm.

It is an improvised show, packed with tales of embarrassing moments, funny celebrities, historical stories we weren’t taught at school, breakdowns, big antique profits, bigger losses, journeys through time, world records and disastrous TV appearances!

The show included Q & As throughout, some give-aways and special prizes too...whether the audience wants them or not!
