THE MAX MILLER EXHIBITION AT BARDSLEY’S
The Max Miller Appreciation Society is chuffed that premises have been found where items from its collection can be exhibited.
THE MAX MILLER DISPLAY IN BARDSLEY'S FISH RESTAURANT IN BRIGHTON
WHERE THE CHEEKY CHAPPIE MEETS THE CHEEKY CHIPPY
The exhibition was opened on Sunday, 7th. June 2009 by Michael Aspel OBE and visited by Ken Dodd OBE Patron of the Max Miller Appreciation Society on 3 August 2009.
The exhibition was relocated into the main dining room in August 2015. Regrettably there was no room for the display cabinet containing the suit but the new location is certainly more desirable for telling the story of Max.
The display tells the story of Max, his early life when the family was so poor they could not pay the rent and had to move homes frequently. Photographs, playbills, posters are all there to tell the story. The exhibition continues to this day and can be viewed during opening hours of the restaurant.
The pub sign was recovered from a skip in Kennington after the Cheeky Chappie Pub was demolished. For the video of the launch party CLICK HERE
