THE Barn Theatre's Ambassador, Poldark's Heida Reed, is set to star in the Cirencester Christmas Spectacular, which takes place on December 6 at the town's Parish Church.

The TV star, who plays Elizabeth in the hit BBC drama, leads the line-up of big names performing at this year’s event, which is the brainchild of The Barn Theatre’s artistic director, Iwan Lewis.

The annual event plays host to some of the finest talent the West End has to offer, showcasing Cirencester’s amazing local talent alongside stars of the stage and screen.

In previous years The Christmas Spectacular has hosted West End stars from hit musicals and shows including Phantom Of The Opera, The Grinning Man, Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, and Calamity Jane.

This year promises to be another star studded evening with the full cast of performers to be announced shortly.

  • Tickets for the Cirencester Christmas Spectacular start at £5 and are available from and Cirencester Visitor Information Centre.
