HE PERFORMED to millions on Eurovision and last week he helped to switch on the Christmas lights in Romford but now Josh Dubovie can add the Queen’s Theatre to his resume when he performs there next month.

Eurovision star Josh Dubovie will be heading into the theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch on Sunday December 5 at 12.45pm.

His appearance forms part of the theatre’s weekly Sunday Lunchtime Jazz sessions and he is hoping to add a touch of glamour to the venue.

The handsome Essex boy who represented the UK in the famous Eurovision song contest in Oslo earlier this year, joins the Queen’s long established Pete Corrigan and the Band Of Hope as an extra special guest for a fun filled afternoon of music packed with many familiar melodies from Dixieland to Swing.

Fans should arrive on time to catch Josh’s slot from 12.45pm to 1.30pm as he sings favourites from the American Songbook such as The Lady Is A Tramp, Fly Me To The Moon, The Way You Look Tonight and Ain’t That A Kick In The Head plus several melodies of his choice.

Before his rise to fame, Josh, now 20 cut his teeth performing at the Queen’s Sunday Jazz sessions as a teenager.

Since his Eurovision appearance, Josh has performed at various events including the Southend Air Show during the summer and also joined characters from the Queen’s Christmas panto Aladdin to switch on the Romford Christmas Lights.

He has also appeared in the Proms in the Park show in Billericay in July and he is also set to make his appearance in the Aladdin pantomime in Kettering in December.

Pete Corrigan and his band have been entertaining audiences every Sunday at the Queen’s for 35 years and are one of the longest running jazz residencies in the country.

Tickets for the show are £6.50 from the box office on 01708 443333.
