Gareth Gates & Stiles & Drewe concert

With Christmas 2013 just around the corner Gareth has posted this message:    sXmas_wreath_100-102

I want to wish all my amazing and loyal fans a very happy Christmas!
Sorry I haven’t been updating much lately – as you can see from Twitter it’s been a little hectic..! 2 panto shows a day… Skating.. And other things to tell you about very soon…. You’ll be seeing lots of me next year.
I’ve got some brand new videos that we’re going to bring you exclusively in here in 2014 so I hope you like them. I know some of you will have heard new music at the shows I did last year – but we decided to film my favourite 3 acoustically so you can all enjoy them – I really hope you do!
I’m looking forward to seeing all my family who will come and be with me in St Albans over Christmas (as I only get the 1 day off!) and most of all to seeing my wonderful daughter Missy. Then it’s right back on the ice.. As that date’s creeping nearer.. !

Have a fantastic Christmas all of your and an exciting 2014!

With confirmation that Gareth is now taking part in the final All Stars Dancing on Ice programme beginning January 5th 2014, we wish him lots of luck on those skates.

Finally, may we take this opportunity to wish all Gareth fans and visitors to the site a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Gareth to be ambassador of new charity school in Bradford

According to the Telegraph & Argus newspaper, Gareth will be an ambassador of a new Bradford school.

A Bradford charity which is opening the city’s newest school in September has announced a number of high-profile ambassadors including celebrities from sports, arts and enterprise.

The One In A Million charity has said the ambassadors, who each have a close connection with Bradford, will support its new Free School over the coming years.

The school, a community partner of Bradford City FC with plans to be based at Valley Parade, is the first of its type in the UK and will offer an innovative curriculum based around vocational and academic study.

Loserville, West Yorkshire Playhouse: 18th June – 14th July

The West Yorkshire Playhouse has announced Loserville as this year’s feature production.  It will star Gareth Gates in the role of Eddie, along with  Aaron Sidwell, Lil’ Chris, Eliza Hope Bennett, and Charlotte Harwood.  

It is a co-production between West Yorkshire Playhouse, Kevin Wallace for First Act! Limited and Youth Music Theatre UK.

From the theatre website:

Welcome to Loserville. It’s 1971. Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he’s invented something that could change the world. He’s also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary.

Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space – well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Eddie wants a fast ride to the top and doesn’t care who gets trampled along the way. Leia just wants Eddie. Or Eddie’s babies – well, she thinks she does. Michael’s friends are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating – in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit.

Loserville is a new musical written by Elliot Davis and James Bourne (inspired by his Son of Dork album Welcome To Loserville). Now meet the Class of 1971. This is their story and now it’s a musical.
