LANDLADY Kath Birch rolled back the years when she celebrated her 10th year in charge of a Southsea pub.

Kath, 46, who runs The Phoenix, in Duncan Road, was presented with a ‘Memory Book’ with photos of stars from The Kings Theatre who have visited the pub.

Louise Birchall, technical manager for The Kings Theatre, gave her the gift to mark the occasion.

The book includes pictures and comments from former Emmerdale actress Lisa Riley, who starred in Aladdin, and Britt Ekland, who played ‘Fairy Pea Pod’ in Jack and the Beanstalk.

Kath said: ‘It made me cry, it’s a really beautiful book.

‘Whatever happens I will always treasure it. It was a very thoughtful thing to do.’
