A NEW production of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy – Live! will be performed at York Grand Opera House this year featuring the original cast of the radio and television shows.

Tomorrow marks ‘Towel Day’, started by fans of the series in 2001 to commemorate the death of creator Douglas Adams, which references the quirky series’ life-saving advice that you should “never go anywhere without your towel”.

Returning stars include Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent, and supporting actors from the various incarnations of the series.

Tickets are available for the show, which will take place on Friday, November 1 from the box office on 08448 713024, or online at atgtickets.com/york and cost between £10 and £25.
