King Of Pop -The Legend Continues... Starring 'NAVI'

navi-king-of-popSaturday 19 July 2014

There are several tribute shows to Michael Jackson currently performing around the world, but only ONE will have you believing for just a moment... The Legend Continues.

This superb production stars 'Navi' who is officially recognised as the world's No.1 MJ impersonator. He is also the only tribute ever to be chosen by Michael Jackson himself. Michael selected Navi to perform at two of his birthday parties and actually gave him a standing ovation. Michael also invited Navi to spend a day at his home 'Neverland'. The pair remained close and Navi was often hired to act as Michael's decoy/body double due to his uncanny resemblance to the star.

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level and has performed in a whopping 57 different countries. Along with his incredible live band and dancers, he is currently taking UK theatres by storm and once again raising the bar in the MJ tribute world with his thrilling new show.

Don't miss King Of Pop – The Legend Continues as Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a night out the whole family will enjoy.

Doors 7pm, show starts 7.30pm
Tickets: £16, £8 under 16's. Group offer buy 10 get 2 free.

buy-tickets online or in person at the Arena Box Office or ring 0844 855 4020. (A transaction fee of £1.50 applies to online bookings plus a postage charge of £1.50 if required.)

Paul Chowdhry – PC's World

paul-chowdhryFriday 19 September 2014

Host of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week and Star of BBC1's Live at the Apollo Paul Chowdhry is back with his biggest ever tour. The Lafta funniest stand-up award winner of 2013 tackles everything borderline within the human psyche. Why is one person's offence another person's humour? PC may be his initials, but the relentless world he lives in definitely isn't. Why has tackling the preconceptions of political correctness become so offensive? Paul will tackle these areas with hard-hitting subjects like the fine art of attracting a women, jokes cut from his TV appearances, homosexuality, non-existent customer services and the now infamous 1980's. It's time to enter PC's World.
