Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous
The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic,Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a longestablished credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared thestage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, Jamesvan Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed cancommunicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently includingnames, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity andempathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychicprediction.
Recent legislative guidelines insist that anyEvening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tonycertainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertainbut more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life andinstil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to comeaway untouched by the experience.

A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers. First choreographed to Tchaikovsky's great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The Royal Ballet's landmark staging was revived for the Company's 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006. The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colourful characters in this famous fairytale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other.
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.
Fierce witha pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could winthe heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano- or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic playwill be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Playing a set from each band and producing a show that will have the audience up and dancing from the off, Special Kinda Madness will have everyone hankering after that exciting era of 2-Tone and ska.
On 21st July 1979 at the Electric Ballroom in London, the Specials played a gig with Madness, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Selecter. That’s a gig that all 2-Tone rude boys and rude girls would die to see, and thought would never happen. The Specials and Madness on the same bill!
In truth, it will probably never happen now … but you can get the next best thing with Special Kinda Madness!
2 Bands … 2-Tone … 1 Fantastic Night!'
