Beautiful blondes Julia
Duckworth (left) and Amy Nolan (right) performed with Anne and Maureen
as The Nolans for six years and amassed a wealth of experience into
their early show business careers.
Amy is Anne's eldest daughter. Julia is not related but is a close friend of the family. They have toured with the group appearing in cabaret bars, gay clubs, theatres, hotels and corporate events.
In addition they have travelled abroad to perform to places like Dubai and Holland as well as completing a sell out summer season show at The Grand Theatre in Blackpool in 2000.
Amy has also played the title role in 'Snow White' at Colne in January 2001. Amy played the same part at The Prince of Wales theatre in Cannock the following year opposite Anne's Wicked Queen character.
In 2004 they were reunited again for two pantomimes at The Princess theatre in Torquay and The Brindley theatre in Runcorn. 2005 saw the pair back in harness at York during the pantomime season.
Julia now lives in Spain and has retired from show business since the Nolans act finished in 2005.
