Celebrating Robert Newton – Born 1st June 1905

Birthday wishes from the Long John Silver Trust must go to that archetypal screen villain, Robert Newton. He was the best Long John Silver ever in Disney’s 1950 version of Treasure Island. He was born 1st June 1905.

And talking of Treasure Island, have you had chance to go on Show of Strength’s Treasure Island Story Walk around Bristol’s Docks?

Performances finish this Sunday 4th June, so, to paraphrase Silver “Them’s that do it ‘ll be the lucky ones …”

About an hour of pure joy and theatre.
