Upcoming Programs & Appearances

This page lists upcoming NEW programs and/or personal appearances by Hugh that I am aware of. It probably isn't complete; I don't have any inside info :) I will only list repeats for things that are rarely on TV. A few merchandise releases are noted as well.

Dates have been coming and going from the posts on hughlaurieblues.com, presumably because local promoters haven't announced everything yet. If you're thinking of getting tickets, I'd suggest watching the venue's web site or social media for the latest info. Because hopefully they would know :)

ABC Canberra is running a competition to win places at an interview/meet & greet with Hugh while he is in Canberra. It sounds like the interview will air on the Alex Sloan Afternoons show.

Christmas 2014 - The Canterville Ghost (UK)(NEW)

@stephenfry tweeted that he and Hugh will be voicing a new animated feature of Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost. This Empire Online story has a pre-production poster with the tag 'Christmas 2014' and says they're still in the financing stage, so fingers crossed it actually happens :)
