TOP comedian and TV star Katherine Ryan has said her cancelled gig for William Aston Hall next month has been moved to a different venue.

Ryan, who has also recently published a book and has a podcast, has been fielding inquiries on social media from fans who have been told that tickets for the show on Saturday, December 4 were cancelled.

She has been replying to tweets and Instagram direct messages to tell fans that the show has been switched to an alternative venue in Oakengates, in Telford – some 50 miles away.

She tweeted: "Yes the alternate venue is Telford Oakengates – sorry for the hassle and it’s very sad that the venue has closed."

And she shared a DM on Instragram from a fan who said they had been emailed to say the gig was cancelled, she replied: "That's so annoying!

"It's actually just changed venues to Telford but I know that's a bit far. I'll be there on the same date – December 4."

A spokesman for Ms Ryan also stated that customers who booked tickets for the Wrexham gig through Ticketmaster have received a link to gain a refund and a chance to re-book for Oakengates.

This will then dictate how many tickets are then left for general sale at the new venue.

William Aston Hall's operating company, VMS, entered liquidation in September this year, with the Covid-19 pandemic given as the main cause.

Ms Ryan's gig is the latest in a line of high-profile stars to be cancelled because of VMS's liquidation, with Jason Manford and Rhod Gilbert taking to social media in recent weeks to express their disappointment at having to call off a trip to Wrexham.

Mr Manford has already pencilled in a return to Wrexham in 2022 with two gigs on March 2 and July 7.
