The Royal Variety performance is almost a nation-wide tradition, sit down with the family and watch all different kinds of acts from musicians and dancers to comedians and magicians. This year the show is to be hosted by comedian Greg Davis who said:
“I am delighted to host the Royal Variety. It is a role that I am wildly unsuited to and I will no doubt offend a great many people, but my Mum has a voracious appetite for meeting members of the Royal family and this seems a reasonable price to pay for the gift of life.”
