WELSH singer, radio and TV presenter Aled Jones MBE is performing at Basildon’s Towngate Theatre next year as a stop on his tour.

The 52-year-old, who rose to fame at the age of 14 with the Christmas classic Walking in the Air, will be at the St Martins Square venue on November 3, 2024.

It comes as the star is looking back on a “remarkable career” spanning 40 years with his one-man show Full Circle.

The hour-and-a-half show, which starts at 7.30pm, will feature never-before-heard music, tales from the decades and, for the first time, his story told in his own words.

Tickets for the show start at £32, with limited goody bag tickets in stalls D to F being priced at £52.

There will also be a limited number of VIP meet and greet tickets, with seats in the first three rows and a goody bag, for £82.

The show’s description on the Towngate Theatre website said: “Prepare to hear Aled Jones as you’ve never heard him before.

“He was the boy treble who captivated the world with his angelic voice.

“Selling more than seven million albums, Aled was the original, classical crossover star. 

“His recording of Walking in the Air, from the animated film The Snowman, firmly established him as a household name and he has become an integral part of the nation’s festivities.

“Equally at home on the classical stage or starring in musical theatre productions in London’s West End, his credits include lead roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. 

“As a singer, Aled is in demand globally and has performed in the world’s most iconic venues, from London’s Royal Albert Hall to the Sydney Opera House.

“A favourite with the Royal Family, he even gave a private performance to King Charles III in Kensington Palace.

“He is an award-winning television broadcaster and radio presenter who’s interviewed hundreds of A-list stars over the years. 

“He heads up BBC’s Songs of Praise and his own Saturday and Sunday morning shows on Classic FM.

“Now, after 40 years in the business, he’s looking back on a remarkable career with a one-man show, that will feature never-before-heard music, tales from the decades and for the first time, his story told in his own words.

“It’s time to come Full Circle.”
