Victoria Wood

19 May 2019

This memorial to a truly funny, clever woman was a joint project between Bury Council and Victoria Wood's estate.

Comedian Ted Robbins and her brother Chris Foote Wood are pictured here with the statue of the much loved comedian, writer and actor. It stands in the gardens opposite Bury library in Greater Manchester where apparently, as a child, she stole books because she was too shy to ask the librarian about membership. In adult life she made a donation to the library as recompense.

You can't help but wonder what she would have to say about it.
