He is the chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, and is best known in the highest circles on both sides of the channel as the man who brought the Tour de France to Yorkshire – in Britain, he was knighted for his services to tourism, and in France he was made a Chevalier of the National Order of Merit.
But there’s more to him than just cycling. In May 2018, he became a Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire.
Born, bred and educated in Leeds, he fell in love with what he calls “the wider Yorkshire” – the glorious Dales and the magnificent coastline where he and his family spent their holidays. His love of animals was inspired by the James Herriot books, and 25 years ago he bought a sheep farm in Coverdale.
Although he’s received international recognition for the work he does, and he travels the world as a representative of this beautiful county, his heart remains in the Dales – a true Yorkshireman.
All proceeds raised tonight will be donated to Marie Curie.

Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind. Jason has a way of presenting true-to-life stories that drag you in and won’t let go, close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that’ll have you laughing in spite of yourself.
In 2012 Jason’s sitcom “Hebburn” was commissioned by the BBC. Vic Reeves, Gina Mckee, Chris Ramsey and Fresh Meat’s Kimberley Nixon joined the cast in a story based on Jason’s own life and upbringing in the South Tyneside town of Hebburn. Hebburn earned him a Royal Television Society Award, the Journal Culture Award for “Best Writer” and National Television Award nomination.
In 2017 Jason wrote the UKTV Gold "Murder on the Blackpool Express" a star studded mixture of comedy and classic murder mystery set on a guided tour coach trip to Blackpool. The cast list included Griff Rhys Jones, Nigel Havers, Johnny Vegas and Una Stubbs. Later in 2018 a follow programme set on a North East Ferry is to be broadcast.
“A wonderfully life-affirming, beautifully crafted, total and utter joy. My jaw aches from laughing”...Time Out

Big name comedy at the Forum with author and comedian Mark Watson. Cluster-bombed with yoghurt on 'Taskmaster', half-killed on 'Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island', Watson returns to what he's best at: being indoors.
Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. 99 percent of the world's population is made up of other people: why can't we understand them? As scrawny and impassioned as ever, one of the UK's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions, with his usual notoriously high joke-and-rant-per-minute rate.

Love and friendship triumph in Carlos Acosta's vibrant production of this dazzling ballet.
Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.
Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the
whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.
