The tour marks 20 years since The Yorkshire chef first graced our TV screens, winning the hearts of the nation. His show will be a fast-paced, interactive and high tech extravaganza. Packed with James’ signature cooking demonstrations, full of surprises and not to mention some very special guests, audiences across the country will be thrilled as this multi media production is brought live to the big stage.

“I’ve been cooking live on TV for 20 years now and I felt it was time to do something I’ve never done before that was truly special,” says James. ” I’m so excited to be heading out on my first ever tour, doing what I do best but on the big stage.  I can’t wait to get out there and visit so many great parts of the UK, this show is going to be super cool.  I’m pulling out my favourite recipes and mixing in plenty of surprises and special guests in what I hope is going to be feast of a live show.  Hope to see you there!”
