Iconic children’s show The Singing Kettle will stop at the Magnum this Friday for the last time.
The special Christmas show will be the last in Ayrshire for husband and wife creators, Artie Trezise and Cilla Fisher.
With the future of the Magnum in doubt, it could also be the last time The Singing Kettle comes to Irvine.
Fairytale Christmas will end a thirty year stage career for the duo, who are opting to step down from the performance side of the company.
The Singing Kettle will live on with the remaining cast members Gary Coupland and Kevin Macleod carrying the kettle, with the recruitment of a new female performer underway.
Almost 4000 people are expected to turn out for The Singing Kettle’s final five shows that will run from Friday, November 30 to Sunday, December 2.
Cilla said on leaving the show:
“We have had an amazing journey to arrive at this point and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. This isn’t the end of the Singing Kettle, it’s the beginning of a new chapter.
“It’s been a bit strange knowing this is the last time we will be touring.
“We want to thank all our Kettle fans and are really looking forward to saying farewell and having one last emotional sing-along with everyone during our Fairytale Christmas tour,” she added.
Tickets for this week’s shows are available from the Magnum on 01294 313 010 or from the venue before each show. For more information please visit www.singingkettle.com.
