FISHERMAN'S Friends The Musical is coming to Glasgow in its world premiere performance. 

Coronation Street actor James Gaddas will star in the production which runs at the King's Theatre from Tuesday, May 9 2023 for six nights.

James is known for two roles in the popular soap, first as Mike Baldwin's business rival Robert Prescott and then as Rovers Return barman Vinny Sorrell when he became a cast regular. 

The musical, which also became a hit film, is based on the true story of a group of Cornish singers, Fisherman's Friends.

The group began singing their traditional working songs to raise money for charity and ended up performing on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
