The show promises to create the most authentic, lively and powerful re-creation of the iconic superstar you will ever experience.

“Michael starring Ben brings together a fresh blend mixing elements of Michael Jackson’s own stage shows with exciting new arrangements combined with a breathtaking light show to create the perfect celebration of Michael and his music.

A concert of English Art Song is the promise at the Steyning Centre on Saturday, November 23.

The Russian National Ballet’s Swan Lake will be at Worthing’s Connaught Theatre on Saturday, November 23 at 7:30pm, with only a handful seats remaining.

After the sell-out performances of Nutcracker last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK with one of the most famous ballets of all time, Swan Lake, one of Tchaikovsky’s best works, featuring some of ballet’s most memorable music and breath-taking dance – the tale of two young women, Odette and Odilie, who resemble each other so strikingly one can easily be mistaken for the other.
