Kingswood Memories – Sir Tony Robinson

Sir Anthony (“Tony”) Robinson is a well-loved actor, author, broadcaster, comedian and presenter, and lived in Bristol for several years. He is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Baldrick in the BBC television series Blackadder, but has also appeared in numerous films and television programmes.

In an extremely varied career Sir Tony has presented several historical documentaries, including the Channel 4 series Time Team and
The Worst Jobs in History. He has also written a number of books and narrated several audiobooks. 

The photograph recalls a visit by Tony to the Grange School in 1990, 23 years before he received a knighthood in the 2013 Queen’s Birthday Honours for his public and political service.  

Sir Tony is Patron of Kingswood Heritage Museum. If you attended the Grange School and would like to pass on your memories of his visit, Kingswood Heritage Museum would love to hear from you on 0117 960 5664 or by email at:
