Win a pair of tickets to see The Wedding Singer at the Bristol Hippodrome

A SPARKLING new production of The Wedding Singer, the hilarious musical based on the hit film, is currently on tour throughout the UK and will be stopping at the Bristol Hippodrome in March.

Most recently he starred in Legally Blonde as Emmett Forrest and in Sister Act as Eddie Souther; other theatre credits include Enjolras in Les Misérables, Spamalot, Memphis and Avenue Q. He is joined on stage by British singer-songwriter Ray Quinn as Glen who shot to fame as the runner-up in ITV1’s The X Factor in 2006 and as champion of Dancing on Ice in 2009.
