Raymond FroggattRaymond Froggatt, makes another welcome return to the Theatre for another entertaining evening, Froggie, to his his army of fans, started his working days as a pipe lagger, night time would be spent singing in the pubs and secretly writing poetry in his spare time, a great talent that maybe would have stayed hidden if not for his TB illness. 

Once he started to recover from his illness Froggie decided to advertise for musicians to put together a Band, four very talented musicians called The Monopoly were formed.

Before long Froggie became signed to the top record companies of the time POLYDOR, BELL, JET WARNER, his writing talents also led to his signing to major publishing houses, a great honour as his songs were being recorded by artists all over the country and abroad; CLIFF RICHARD, DAVE CLARK FIVE to name but a few.

Still today his songs are recorded by major artists. In 1992 Raymond released his autobiography telling stories of his earlier years in the music business.

His concerts are sold out across the country and abroad, the Froggie followers arrive at the shows clutching their frogs with green scarves waving, certainly a sight to behold. Froggie writes and sings his own songs mesmerising his audience, making them laugh with one of his many stories or cry with emotion with a song that touches the heart like no other.
