  1. Today
  2. Anyone travelling to Wolverhampton tomorrow please be aware the Christmas Market begins https://www.expressandstar.com/news/local-hubs/wolverhampton/2017/09/04/new-details-of-victorian-christmas-market/ (may be some traffic delays)
  3. There are more venues added on Gareth's event page http://www.garethgates.com/events/ It also says New Gareth Gates Website coming soon!?http://www.garethgates.com/
  4. Thanks, Chris, for the links to all the reviews - will catch up on them later. I don't know where the reviewer that commented on pop songs being used has been for the last few years, as every panto that Gareth has done has used pop songs (and I'm sure other pantos are the same) - it's what the kids know and gets them even more involved. Looking forward to seeing this tomorrow.
  5. But leading man and star of the show is Gareth Gates, looking rugged and sounding smooth. His pop star vocals are as sweet as ever, and he treats us to a rendition of Unchained Melody that gives me shivers. He looks great in panto costume and handles the action well, leaving the broad comedy to the others. His voice blends well with Sarah Vaughan’s Jill, and a traditional routine on a wall with interference from Simple Simon offers one of this funny shows funniest moments. There is a chaotic version of The 12 Days of Christmas, complete with water pistols, and a delightful moment with youngsters brought up from the audience. https://bumonaseat.wordpress.com/2017/12/12/beanz-meanz-lolz/ http://www.thereviewshub.com/jack-and-the-beanstalk-grand-theatre-wolverhampton/ http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/theatre-news/review-jack-beanstalk-wolverhampton-grand-14032489 http://www.fashion-mommy.com/2017/12/13/jack-and-the-beanstalk-is-brilliant-fun-at-wolverhampton-grand/ http://www.behindthearras.com/Reviewspr/2017/reviewPROOctDec2017/jack-and-the-beanstalk-review-G12-17.html http://www.halesowennews.co.uk/leisure/hnleisuretheatre/15769087.Review__Jack_and_the_Beanstalk_full_of_Black_Country_fun_for_the_whole_family/ Blimey it was a busy press night!
  6. Some reviews are in following Press Night: Gareth Gates tops the bill as 'Jack'. Happy to be playing a role other than the prince, Gates' performance is both understated and credible. Whilst a show like this is absolutely about the star names on the bill, the setup of pantomime is gruelling and takes its toll. Gates is a safe pair of hands who gets stuck into the spirit of things and has a strong singing voice. http://www.blackcountryradio.co.uk/blogs/theatre/post/review-jack-and-the-beanstalk-at-wolverhampton-grand/?utm_content=buffercdda8&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer Gareth Gates sang beautifully, and it was a pleasure to hear him sing Unchained Melody. It was surprising that pop songs were used throughout the show, as I have never come across that in a panto before. It really worked though, and I found myself thinking that that Jack and the Beanstalk soundtrack would be a number one seller! http://whatsgoodtodo.co.uk/jack-and-the-beanstalk-at-the-wolverhampton-grand-review/ X Factor star Gareth Gates is marvellous as Jack the lad himself https://lichfieldlive.co.uk/2017/12/13/review-jack-and-the-beanstalk-at-the-grand-theatre-in-wolverhampton/
  7. Last week
  8. Yes I agree Val, it was lovely to see Gareth with the little boy
  9. Thanks Heather, that was brilliant and brought a tear to my eye to see how lovely Gareth was with the little boy. Ironic that they had a snow machine with the panto cancelled today because of too much real snow!!
  10. Thank you. So good to watch.
  11. Thank you for posting this Heather 🙂lovely to see.
  12. There is a super Video of the Wednesbury Christmas Lights switch on , on youtube . You need to watch all of it as Gareth is on several times including the end
  13. Earlier
  14. This was Chris Evans this morning talking about the Great British Pantomime Awards http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05qbg5m and this is the where they will take place next year. http://www.pantomimeawards.co.uk/ Have to keep our eyes on the site for this year's nominations.
  15. Looking forward to the panto
  16. Adam Booth played Buttons in Cinderella in Crewe with Gareth, of course.
  17. Thanks Chris, looking forward to seeing it as it should be lots of fun with Lisa Riley and Graham Cole - I think we've seen Adan Booth in Panto before with Gareth.
  18. Some fab photos coming from the rehearsal rooms https://www.broadwayworld.com/westend/article/Photo-Flash-In-Rehearsal-With-JACK-AND-THE-BEANSTALK-at-Wolverhampton-Grand-20171130
  19. Thanks for posting this Maria. A lovely statement. Love the pics too.
  20. Love this tweet from @DarrenNortheast from the Diamond and Ice charity event Friday night, glad he seen Gareth for the young man we all know and love. Words fail me as to how incredible you were tonight @Gareth_Gates!! Just unbelievable. Thank you for all you did for @cheryljdavies tonight! #Amazing #bournemouth #charity Pics too
  21. Thank you so much for posting this interview 🙂lovely read as always. The stammer school will be a huge success.
  22. Thanks for letting us see this article Heather. Gareth opens up quite a bit including admitting his stammer has held him back. Not sure I have read/heard that from him before?
  23. You are right Linda. According to the article in New Magazine HERE it's January 27th & 28th 2018. Moving it back into News!
  24. Great Interview with Gareth
  25. Thanks Elaine for letting us know about Gareth in The Sun's Bizarre . Katie Price said the about Gareth quite a while ago , and they've read Gareth's comments from New Magazine , which I thought where good . I bought New Mag yesterday which was worth buying , it was mainly Gareth's Stammer School which starts in January and Gareth's love for Missy .
  26. Well done Gareth and well done The Sun printing it. Thanks Elaine.
  27. Thanks for posting this, yes good on Gareth, she spoilt herself yet again bringing Gareth up in the feud with Chris in the way that she did, his music career may nit be what it used to be but he is very successful is several ways and gained what he has by working hard. Will have to buy the interview in New to see what he has to say as seems he probably talks about several things in it.
  28. I am looking forward to the pizza express tour and booked for this as at the moment it's my only chance of seeing Gareth next year. Good on Him joining the cruise ship in the Caribbean, I was also thinking it was just mini cruises.
