Snooker Legends Show at Plymouth Pavillions Rescheduled

The snooker legends show at Plymouth Pavilions on July 24 has been rescheduled due to a booking clash.

One of the show's stars, Jimmy White, is contractually obliged to defend his Samsung Bangkok 6 Reds Championship title this year.

Unfortunately, the Thailand Authority announced the dates this week and they clashed with the Pavilions show.

Therefore, Jimmy and Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins, John ‘The Entertainer’ Parrott and Cliff ‘The Grinder’ Thorburn will be visiting the venue two weeks earlier than originally planned.

Plymouth Pavilions marketing officer Robert Maltby said "Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date.

"However, if you are unfortunately unable to make this new date, please contact a member of the Box Office team and they will be happy to arrange a full refund.

"We apologise for any inconvenience that this change in scheduling may cause, and look forward to welcoming customers to see the show on the new date."

The snooker legends will now visit Plymouth Pavilions on July 10. Tickets cost £20 on 0845 146 1460 and

Gest Plan for Devon Jacko Site

ECCENTRIC reality star David Gest plans to create a museum dedicated to dead pal Michael Jackson - in Plymouth.

The former I'm a Celebrity contestant is in talks to buy a historic seafront hotel in the Devon town to fill with his Jacko memorabilia.

Gest, 56, said: "I've always loved Plymouth. I want to bring a little bit of showbiz to the city."

Alongside items from the King of Pop - David's best friend - the 300-piece exhibit would include pieces once owned by late The Doors frontman Jim Morrison.

The ex-husband of singer Liza Minnelli, 63, stayed at the hotel he has his eye on - St Elizabeth's House - for two nights at Christmas.

He plans to keep the hotel side open and turn it into a five-star venue with top chefs and jazz acts.

David said: "I think my name would make it work. I've always wanted to own a hotel."
