Maple Tree Entertainment, in collaboration with Fremantle Australia, have announced the initial cast for Neighbours: The Farewell Tour, coming to Belfast's Waterfront Hall on 01 March 2023.
Presenter Carol Vorderman, revealed live on ITV’s Lorraine the first two names to join the tour next year. Two iconic stars from the show, Jackie Woodburne and Alan Fletcher, who have played the loveable Kennedy duo for 27 years are now confirmed to travel to the UK in March 2023 for the highly-anticipated tour, which is set to open in The Waterfront Hall Belfast on 01 March 2023 and tour 15 dates throughout the UK.
Together, both stars have remained mainstay characters on the show since joining in 1994. The ‘King and Queen of Ramsay Street’ have been front and centre for some of the biggest scenes over the last 28 years with many dramatic storylines. Jackie and Alan have been key cast members right until the end of the show, which is due to air later this month, and have remained two of the most beloved characters on our screens for almost three decades.
