“Zippy and Me” by Ronnie Le Drew

Our President, Ronnie Le Drew has written the book, “Zippy & Me”

I am pleased to announce that I have 100% funding for my book, which means that it will get published. My authors and I (I sound like her Majesty ) are very excited, and I would like to thank all who have pledged for their copy of the book.

Now it has to be edited, pictures to be found, and checked by the publishers legal team. So will be a while before it gets printed.

BUT if you still haven’t pledged for the book all is not lost!

Ronnie is one of the most talented puppeteers of our generation.

But the role that really defined his career was Zippy in Rainbow, a puppet which he operated for more than two decades.

During the show’s heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, its stars found themselves catapulted into an exciting showbiz world – popular not just with the pre-school audience they were performing for, but with a generation of parents as well. They scooped a Bafta, appeared on late-night chat shows, and even performed for the Queen.

This book represents the first time a Rainbow insider has told the true story of what went on under the counter and inside the suits.
