James Martin Live

James Martin Returns with Brand New Live Tour for 2025

Celebrity chef James Martin is heading back on the road with his all new LIVE tour for 2025 including a date in Aberdeen.

Following four sell-out tours James Martin Live will see the popular TV chef and best-selling author visit 20 amazing venues across England, Scotland and Wales, combining the perfect ingredients of mouth-watering dishes with his warm Yorkshire wit.

The exciting and fast-moving show will visit P&J Live's Hall C on Friday March 7th, 2025.

“Be prepared for a laugh-out-loud, high-energy night out filled with tantalising flavours that will leave your taste buds craving,” said James.

“The live tours are brilliant so I can’t wait to get back out and do it all over again. If you’ve seen the live show previously then you know that our main aim is to have fun and if you haven’t been before, why not?!

“I’m going to be cooking live on stage and hopefully you’ll pick up some tips to take to your own kitchen but above all else, let’s get together and have a laugh.”

James Martin has been entertaining and educating the nation for three decades with his expert culinary skills both on screen and through his best-selling cookbooks.

Previous live tours have seen him build the ‘biggest and best bacon and cheese butty’, perform ‘surgery’ on a Barbie doll to create a Baked Alaska, invite audience members to show off their tattoos and even pick up his guitar to perform live.

Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions & Marketing at P&J Live says: “We’re not strangers when it comes to James Martin. After welcoming him at Taste of Grampian in 2022 and 2023 where his cooking demos proved hugely popular with the Aberdeen crowd – we’re excited to see him take centre stage with his solo show next year. Ticket holders will be in for a treat!”

More than 65,000 people flooded to see James’ last two tours to witness his expert culinary skills and for 2025 audiences can expect a no-holds barred night of entertainment, filled with delicious buttery recipes, comedy, cars, nostalgic stories and music.
