The Squire of Knotty Ash is to be honoured with a special civic lunch at Liverpool Town Hall on his 90th birthday.
Today, Sir Ken Dodd – a Freeman of the City - will be treated to a rendition of his famous hit Happiness by pupils from Knotty Ash Primary School, and children from Trinity Primary School will entertain him with their favourite jokes. A special Doddy-themed afternoon tea will be served - including sandwiches fresh from the Jam Butty Mines and Diddy Pies!
Lord Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said:
Sir Ken is proud to be honoured with a civic lunch on his 90th birthday in his home city.
