Northallerton Forum is one of the 20-plus venues included in the current tour and Dom will perform there on October 8.

From North Korea to Chernobyl, Dom has visited some of the most unusual places on the planet – including the Australian bush in the tenth series of hit TV show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

He famously attended school with Osama Bin Laden and fans can expect his holiday snaps to serve up a mix of comedy and danger.

Dom said: “We were mid-way through the tour when Covid brought everything to a standstill, so I’m delighted that I’m finally able to get back on the road.”
