THE Black Country’s Dancing Grannies are delving into their past for their latest stage show.

Back In Our Day, which will be touring the Midlands from December into the New Year, will trace the history of the gyrating geriatrics Letty, May and Hilda, starting from their teens and will feature their dance routines from the 1940s to the present day.

The group is the brainchild of Fizzogs Productions and has built up a worldwide following over the past four years since a video of one of their routines performed at Stourbridge Carnival went viral.

Fizzog Sue Hawkins said: “The Grannies really have developed a life of their own and we have learned how to ride the wave.

“The response has been amazing since that Stourbridge Carnival video went online. It suddenly went viral with so many views on different sites all around the world. We stopped counting at 350 million. It seems to have captured the attention of all age groups.

“Back In Our Day will show what the old dears have been up to through all those years and shows them in all their glory from when they were teenagers.”

The Grannies have travelled the world to perform their routines and their appearances have thrilled audiences at the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix, Times Square in New York, the Belfast Maritime Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

They also appeared on a tour of the UK with Bollywood star Diljit Dosanjh as well as performing regularly at weddings, family celebrations and promotional events for Specsavers.

Before the Back in Our Day tour starts at Netherton Arts Centre on Friday December 21, the Fizzogs will perform their Wicked Wizard Of Fizzog show at Wolverhampton’s Grand Theatre on Saturday November 17.
