**TICKETS ON SALE NOW**

Due to pandemic concerns, Jon Richardson has rescheduled his Knitwit tour to 2023. His Olympia Theatre show will now take place on Saturday 28th January 2023.

Jon says: “I’m very sorry to say that the Knitwit tour is going to be delayed by another year and will now start in September 2022. 

The delayed reopening of clubs means quite simply that even were I to return to gigging immediately I couldn’t guarantee being ready to perform to the standard I expect when shows were due to begin in September and I don’t want to let down anyone who has paid for a ticket, especially when times are so hard. 

I am sorry for all those of you who were looking forward to coming along at the end of this year and I apologise also to the theatres and their staff who are depending on a return to normality to keep their doors open. I feel a great responsibility to you all and have had to make what I believe to be the best choice from two bad options. 

I recognise that for many of you this will be three years after you first bought tickets and I can only imagine how circumstances might have changed for you all in the meantime. As before you will contacted by your local theatre and offered a rescheduled date or a refund for your tickets. 

I apologise for a formal and sombre tone. I am in no doubt that not getting to hear my whining voice will not be the worst thing that happens to anyone this year, but still I am gutted not to be heading out on the road as promised. I hope to see you all next year with a show that will be worthy of your patience and loyalty.”

Will the recycling be put out on the right day?  Who is going to smooth over the top of the margarine?  How many lights are on upstairs when everybody is downstairs?  

Watch Jon pretend that these aren't his foremost concerns as he leaves home on his first tour since the last one.
