Hugely popular stand up comic and TV star Rhod Gilbert will be bringing his current tour to Newtown next year, a town theatre has confirmed.

The multi-award-winning stand-comic had taken a seven year break from stand-up before going back on the road with his The Book of John tour.

And tickets are today going on sale for his newly-confirmed show at Newtown's Hafren Theatre.

The show takes place on Saturday, June 25, 2022, and tickets cost £29.50.

They will be available from the theatre's own website here, and go on sale at 10am. Alternatively tickets can be bought from the theatre's box office on 01686 614555, between 9.30am and 2.30pm.

The tour has been extended due to overwhelming demand, the organisers say, and the Carmarthen-born star of Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience has since played at more than 100 venues across the UK.

Every performance to date has sold out, including six nights at Cardiff Arena and ten nights at the EICC in Edinburgh.

Rhod will be donating some of the proceeds from the tour to his chosen charities: The Stroke Association and Alzheimer’s Society.
