Merry tour is cancelled

A tour of The Merry Widow which was due at the Futurist in Scarborough early next year has been cancelled.

The operetta was due to be staged at the seafront venue on Saturday March 25.

The tour has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances, said a spokesman.

The Futurist is due to host two gigs by Billy Connolly.

The comedian is at the venue on January 21 and 22.
