The Covid-safe performance will take place in the building's Torrington Suite.

Gerald will be performing two shows, a matinee at 2pm followed by an evening performance at 7.30pm.

Looking forward to returning to Merseyside, Mr Dickens said: "Traditionally I do a number of shows on Merseyside, the highlight of which is my residency as St George's Hall.

"Obviously, the pandemic has impacted massively on my schedule, so I’m absolutely delighted to be able to perform at Thornton Hall and hopefully see some old friends."

Due to Covid restrictions places are extremely limited.

Tickets are available now by visiting

The show is backed by a full Covid guarantee and should restrictions change, tickets are 100% refundable.

Thornton Hall General Manger Geoff Dale said: "This is a truly unique event which we are sure will be the highlight of your Christmas.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Gerald has chosen to perform here at Thornton Hall and we can't wait to welcome everyone and spread some much needed Christmas cheer."
