Past King Rat


A veteran comedy performer on Variety-bills and Summer Show star in resorts around the country ( seven in Llandudno and four in Blackpool where he was refered to as "Blackpool's favourite Welsh comedian").

Appearing annually in over 50 pantomimes he achieved the status of one of Britain's premier panto dames especially renowned as a classic Widow Twankey. (When Sir Ian McKelland was booked to play the role in a National Theatre production he contacted Wyn Calvin for guidance in playing the character.)

One of the Order's longest serving Councillors and Trustee of the Charities Fund he was crowned King Rat in 1991 - the only Welshman in the history of the Order to hold that elevated role !
