THE Wyvern Theatre has announced that Keith Chegwin will headline the Swindon pantomime for a third year running.

The star, who is about to take to the stage as Wishee Washee in this year's production of Aladdin, said he was thrilled to be at the Wyvern once again.

“I’m so excited,” said Keith. 

“Panto at the Wyvern Theatre has become part of my Christmas routine now – Swindon’s my Christmas home.”

Keith will have a busy 2013 which begins with joining the line-up for Dancing On Ice.

The star, who crashed out of the last series before performances in Cinderella last year, has returned to the ice and this time it’s personal.

He will also appear in a brand-new feature episode of Ricky Gervais’ Life’s Too Short alongside Shaun Williamson and Les Dennis.

Cheggers will then return to the Wyvern to perform the hilarious role of ‘Silly Billy’ in the theatre’s 2013-2014 pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.

“As with many theatres in the UK, the Wyvern has forged a strong connection with its pantomime’s leading star,” said Theatre Director Derek Aldridge.

“We love Keith, the audience love Keith and it is therefore my pleasure to invite him back to the Wyvern.”

Jack and the Beanstalk will run at the Wyvern Theatre from December 7 to January 5, 2014.

Tickets will be on sale from Friday at

And don’t forget – there are still tickets available to see Keith Chegwin in this year’s magical pantomime adventure Aladdin, which opens on Saturday.
