Burn the Floor - Fire in the Ballroom

Ballroom Dancing was never so fiesty! The live stage forerunner to Strictly Come Dancing and its worldwide franchises, Burn The Floor's brand-new show breathes pure fire into traditional dances such as the Foxtrot, Waltz and Smooth, in a way that will take your breath away. With 14 world-class dancers leading the proceedings, be prepared to hear cleverly re-interpreted tunes accompanied by the very best dancing that you've never experienced.

New English Ballet Theatre: Quint-essential

November 9-12, 2016

Five new dance works. The five best up and coming choreographers in the UK. These elements combine to form Quint-essential, a collection of brand-new works that are considered the best new pieces to be composed in the last couple of years. With contributions by the likes of Royal Ballet's Marcelino Sambe, Kristen McNally and Valentino Zucchetti followed by independent artists Daniela Cardim Fonteyne and George Williamson, this three day festival is one not to miss!

On a cold winter's night, a young boy gets the surprise of his life, when the snowman that he built that day magically comes to life! Together they embark on a wondrous adventure, and escape peril by the troublesome Jack Frost. A must-see for youngsters and adults alike, this will relight your Christmas spirit!
