Laurel and Hardy came to Brighton twice, on their
British UK Tours -
three times if one counts an afternoon visit to Max Miller's house.
Stan and Ollie first appeared at the Hippodrome
Theatre, Middle Street, Brighton, in 7 July 1952.
Stan and Ollie returned in 8 February 1954. On both occasions they stayed at the Grand Hotel, Kings Road, Brighton.
It's makes me happy to report that, against all odds, both venues are intact.
