FAB-U-LOUS news Dah-ling - Strictly's Craig Revel Horwood is coming to Cov!

FAB-U-LOUS news Dah-ling!…Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood is heading to Coventry in spring 2020 with his debut solo tour.

Craig will be coming to Warwick Arts Centre on Saturday May 23, where he will be revealing all the backstage gossip on his own life from Australia to the West End to Strictly, with his trademark wit and candour. He will also be performing to some of the music which has been the soundtrack to his career.

The Australian British dancer’s professional training began in his home country where he appeared in productions including West Side Story and La Cage Aux Folles. When he arrived in Europe Craig joined the famous company at the Lido Du Paris as a dancer and then as principle singer at the Moulin Rouge, finding himself a year later in the UK tour of Cats.

Since then, Craig has appeared in the West End in Miss Saigon and was an original cast member of Crazy For You. He crossed over into choreography to huge success, being nominated for an Olivier Award for the West End productions of Spend Spend Spend and My One and Only. Numerous other credits as a theatre director/choreographer, range from a hugely successful UK tour of Sister Act to the film Paddington 2. Craig continues to perform onstage, with ten years in panto and as Miss Hannigan in Annie in the West End and on tour.

Craig has appeared in all 17 series of Strictly Come Dancing, and is now also Head Judge on Dancing With The Stars Australia. His many other TV credits range from discovering his ancestry in Who Do You Think You Are, winning BBC2’s Maestro at the Opera and runner up on Celebrity Masterchef.
