TheSOUTHERN has four sets of family tickets – each worth £44 – to a historic tour for the Singing Kettle.
Husband and wife Cilla Fisher and Artie Trezise – who founded the musical children’s entertainment show back in 1982 – are retiring after their Fairytale Christmas schedule, which includes two dates in Kelso later this month.
However, the show will go on, with Cilla and Artie planning to take on backstage creative roles while a new female cast member is found ahead of a new tour in March next year.
Speaking about the Fairytale Christmas extravaganza, a spokesperson for the Singing Kettle said: “This electrifying singalong will enthral both young and old and is the perfect treat to get everyone in the festive spirit.
Cilla the Good Fairy, Artie the Mad Hatter, Gary as Prince Charming and Kevin as the Pied Piper will see the Singing Kettle at its breathtaking best.
“Some lucky children will end up on stage to join in the excitement and there’s even a visit from a very special guest with a white beard in a red suit.”
The Singing Kettle perform in the Tait Hall at 1pm and 3.30pm on Sunday, November 25, and at 10am on Monday, November 26.
Tickets are available from www.borderevents.co.uk or Brown’s newsagents in Kelso.
