Ken Dodd (c) Stephen Shakeshaft / Liverpool Echo and Post

Next week, our exhibition of Ken Dodd photographs opens at the Museum of Liverpool.

You can visit ‘By Jove! It’s Ken Dodd! Photographs by Stephen Shakeshaft’ from Friday 8 November, but a lucky few can also be part of the Private View the night before.

We have five pairs of tickets to give away for the Private View of the exhibition on Thursday 7 November from 6 – 8pm.

All you have to do to enter, is email with the answer to the following question:

How many years has Ken Dodd been tickling our chuckle muscles for?

Send your answer, name and telephone number by 5pm on Monday 3 November to be in with a chance to win. Winners will be notified on Tuesday 4 November.

Good luck!

    Just entered the ken Dodd competition, and I have my fingers and tickling sticks all crossed… If I need an reason to go to our fantastic museum (and I don’t) this exhibition is it.

      Hi Martin,

    60 Years and he really is a credit to this great cjity of ours, he used to deliver coal with his Dad and brother to my late wife’s house in Pilch Lane during the war. he is a proud English gentleman.

      Hi Ted,

      That’s such a nice memory. We filmed an interview with Ken, which will be featured in the exhibition, and he mentions his dad delivering coal. Hope to see you at the exhibition soon, and good luck if you’ve entered the competition!
