Christmas Ianto

I get the best of the lot – puns, news… I tell you, if you’re seriously bothered about Christmas Pantos starring Torchwood stars today on what is one of the hottest days of the year, you need a new diary.

Gareth David-Lloyd appears Cinderalla at Charter Theatre in Preston As it is, Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones) is confirmed for the starring role of Prince Charming in a production of Cinderella this Christmas at the Charter Theatre in Preston, Lancashire.

Gareth will be lining up against the multi-talented (!) Ted Robbins as Baron Hardup twice daily almost every day between December 8th and January 3rd, with a special sign language interpreted performance on Friday December 18th at 7pm.

Standard ticket prices are £11 children, £15 adults and £44 families, although these don’t apply across the entire Christmas period – check the Preston Guild Hall website for more details.

And congratulations to Gareth David-Lloyd for apparently beating Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy AND Bonnie Langford to the panto announcements.
