Circus of Horrors - Fri 1st Feb

Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre & dare devil Circus acts, a stella light show and all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.

The Circus of Horrors is back with a bang & a brand new show, which includes an amazing amalgamation of acts, driven by a  rock n roll sound scape, a show that will have you sat on the edge of your seat when not falling off it with laughter.

Tony Stockwell - Thur 7th Feb

At its best, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and to instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell is not a new kid on the block and during his 25 years working as a medium he has constantly worked to improve his game and push the boundaries of his communication. In that time he has had umpteen television programmes, taught at some of the most respected schools for mediumistic development as well as setting up his own training school for developing mediums.

The Jive Aces - Sat 16th Feb

The UK’s No.1 and world’s busiest swing and jive band, The Jive Aces present their biggest theatre show to date, the Big Beat Revue!
