Rule The World - Sunday 6th October at 7.30pm

Now in it’s 12th year touring, the award winning ‘Rule The World’ has been recognised as the Number 1 ‘Take That’ tribute show in the world!

The cast recently appeared alongside THE REAL ‘TAKE THAT’ on BBC1’s ‘The Graham Norton Show’ and after hearing Dan Maines (Gary), a stunned Gary Barlow said in amazement “He sounds like me!”. The real Gary then also praised the whole band saying “They’re very good these guys!” – not an easy statement to acquire from the former X Factor judge. 

This production will take you through the musical highlights of ‘Take That’s’ career. From the moment the fresh faced boys first stepped on stage in the early 1990’s, to Robbie’s huge success as a solo artist selling out 3 nights in Knebworth.
