Strictly Come Dancing star Neil Jones is coming to Grantham
Strictly Come Dancing professional Neil Jones will be touring the UK for the very first time in 2021, with his brand new show Gingerland.
The tour will visit Grantham’s Guildhall Arts Centre on Wednesday, March 24 2021, with tickets priced from £25.50. There is also an option for a VIP meet and greet for £58.
Away from the Strictly dance floor, Neil will demonstrate the real reason he has so many ballroom and Latin championship titles to his name – 45 in fact.
Originally due to tour in June and July 2020, the production has been rescheduled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Neil said: “Being ginger myself, with this show I wanted to create a kind of tribute to gingers. There will be a lot of dancing, obviously, but I want to combine it with comedy and music.
“I’ve also been researching celebrities through the years that were ginger and I’m going to incorporate them into the show. It’s going to be a very light-hearted, fun show for everyone, whether you are ginger or you know a ginger, everyone will be able to relate to it.”
In 2019, for series 17 of the hit show, Neil was paired with a celebrity for the first time on the main show. Partnered with footballer and pundit Alex Scott, they progressed to week 11, coming fifth in the competition.
It has recently been announced that Neil will return to the show for series 18 and he is excited to help a new celebrity experience the joy of dance.
On the Gingerland 2021 Tour, Neil will showcase what made him unique within the dancing world and introduce you to the very people who influenced him as a dancer.
“It just so happens that they were all ginger.
Neil added: “Prepare yourself…you are in for a night you will never want to forget!”
