Book now to avoid missing stars perform in Melksham

TICKETS are selling fast to see comedy stars Des O’Connor and Seann Walsh in Melksham – so book now to avoid disappointment. 

Excitement has built in the town with more big names coming to the Assembly Hall with strong ticket sales. However, there are some still available to see Des O’ Connor on Friday 19th June and Seann Walsh on Thursday 9th April.

Des O’Connor, one of the UK’s most popular and best loved entertainers, has been awarded a CBE for his services to entertainment and broadcasting, Des is one of only a handful of British entertainers to be acclaimed internationally on stage and on television.

Recent TV includes Des O’Connor Tonight specials; an ITV celebration special to mark Des’ 40th year on prime time television; Des O’Connor Comedy Tonight and a series of prime-time Des O’Connor With… one-to-one specials.  His award-winning ITV1 daily celebrity talk show Today with Des & Mel, in which he appeared with co-host Melanie Sykes, proved such a hit with viewers that the show more than doubled its audience.

“It’s a massive thrill and a privilege to be able to welcome Des O’Connor to Melksham for a wonderful evening of comedy, laughter and music” said Assembly Hall operations manager Lorna Howard.

“Des is one of a very few genuine showbusiness greats and this is a rare opportunity to see a true entertainment  legend live on stage, up close and personal, in Melksham’s very own Assembly Hall.”

Tickets for An Evening with Des O’Connor are priced at £24 each (£22 concessions for pensioners) and are available from Melksham Assembly Hall (01225 704187) or the Tourist Information Centre (01225 707424).

Tickets are also available to see Seann Walsh as he visits Melksham with his new show ‘Seann 28.’

Seann Walsh, star of Channel 4’s ‘Virtually Famous’  and ‘Stand Up for the Week’  and BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, will appear on Thursday 9th April and will be supported on the evening by up and coming comedian Mark Simmons.

Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.

Having reached the age of 28 Seann is on tour with his aptly named new show ’28’ where he is now living with his girlfriend, and she is trying to sort him out!

Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC 1);  ‘Argumental’ (Dave); ‘Seann Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular’ (BBC3); Channel 4’s ‘Comedy Gala Live At The 02’ 2012 and 2013; ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ (BBC2), ‘Celebrity Juice’ (ITV2), ‘Mock The Week’ (BBC2), ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4) and ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’ (Channel 4)

Tickets for Seann Walsh are priced at £14. They are available from Melksham Assembly Hall, telephone 01225 709887 or the Tourist Information Centre 01225 707424.
