You may or may not be aware that John and Edward Grimes (and together they are Jedward) are performing at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre this festive season in their fourth panto for that venue. The Twins are the stars of the show in “Jedward in Beauty and the Beast”, and have so far completed a third of their 36 show run, to excellent reviews. If you can’t get to Dublin to see them (and really, you should!), never fear, there’s plenty of John and Edward to go around this year!
Today you can catch the Twins in the UK at 1pm on “Jedward’s Jepic Christmas” (BuzMuzik); 5pm and 8.10pm in ChartShowTV on “Jedward’s Jedmas!”; and at 5.30pm see a repeat on CBBC of their appearance this year on “The Slammer”, in the Christmas special, “The Slammer Returns“.
In Ireland John and Edward will be on Zig and Zag’s Christmas Special tomorrow Christmas Day, at 7pm on RTE, and again in the UK the Twins will be on CBBC from 12.30-2.55pm on 26 December, in repeats from series 1 and 2 of their hit history programme, “Jedward’s Big Adventure“.
Limited tickets for “Jedward in Beauty and the Beast” are available from the box office of the Olympia and from Ticketmaster.
