Paul has performed at a number of venues bringing swing and jazz music to fans far and wide. The father of twin boys said: "I'm really looking forward to the show, it's going to be a good night which will bring the crowd together through the love of swing and Christmas music.

"Not only does the show feature music but there's interaction with the crowd as we tell jokes and get everyone in good spirits. It's a chance to escape and really enjoy yourself in the theatre."

He hopes that the Christmas show can become an annual event.
