A COLWYN Bay institution is set to pay tribute to the town's favourite - and funniest - son Terry Jones in the most fitting way possible.

A special fundraising screening of Monty Python's The Life of Brian will held at Theatr Colwyn on Friday, February 21 at 7.30pm. to honour its patron a month to the day after the legendary comedian, actor and director's death.

Originally from Colwyn Bay, Jones died on Tuesday, January 21 after an “extremely brave but always good humoured battle” with Frontotemporal Dementia. Responding to the sad news at the time, the venue paid its respects by holding a one minute silence.

But now it's time to celebrate to life and works of the funny man by remembering what made the man so funny. Of course, through the intimidating body of work he developed with his fellow Pythons, it might be hard to narrow it down for the perfect send off

But there can be no other work that better encapsulates Jones contribution to Monty Python than the Life of Brian.

Including one of his most recognisable turns - in drag of course - as the mother of Brian, the film also sees Jones utter perhaps his most immortal line - "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!"

A spokesperson for the venue said: "We are showing this classic Monty Python comedy film, which he directed and starred in, to celebrate his life as an actor, writer, film director and historian – and Colwyn Bay’s most famous son.

"Theatr Colwyn was very close to Terry’s heart, his grandfather and mother performed on stage here in the 1930s and over the years he helped us raise substantial amounts of money to redevelop the building."

Admission for the screening is by donation, with a minimum of £5, with all proceeds going to a charity chosen by Jones' family.
