Playing The Joker at The Queens Hotel

Playing The Joker will be coming to the iconic Queens Hotel as part of Red Ladder’s tour on the 11th of May at 2pm and 6pm.

After each performance there will be a Q & A session hosted by writer Anthony Clavane and members of the cast discussing the part the Queens played in the lives of many of the city’s sporting legends and the ‘behind the scenes’ rumours that abounded.

Other guests that will be joining them include:

Eddie Gray, the Leeds United legend, who stayed at the Queens with the famous Don Revie team in the 60s and 70s will be there.

Ronnie Teeman, a close friend of Eddie Waring’s who met up with him every week at the Queen’s Hotel. Ronnie is the longest-serving lawyer in Leeds and a former sports agent. He has run two rugby league teams – Bramley and Hunslet.

Phil Caplan. A local rugby league writer and bookseller.

Tony Collins. The writer of several seminal books on rugby league and a history professor at De Montfort University.

We hope to see you all there!  Go to the what’s on section for more information and book your  tickets.
