The Riviera Fringe Festival. July 5th to 12th






My dear friend and colleague Jay Fortune, together with my long standing booking agent and friend Anne George from Trevor George Entertainments have created and are running the first Fringe Festival for Torbay.

If you are on holiday down in Torbay between July 5th and the 12th, please do support a show of your choice.


The Magic Cavern joins the festival for 2015. Watch this space for some very special news on that subject.

My admiration and sincere best wishes go to all involved in this mammoth undertaking. Long may this festival run, which goes back to strong roots of presenting all genre of events large and small.


The fairground magic returns to the West End

‘The Side Show of Wonders’ A show, which has been out of London for a year returns to the West End this Sunday. Jermyn Street Theatre at 3.00pm. And then plays various Sunday dates at his theatre throughout 2014.


Master Magician Richard Leigh has created a mystical playground – a realm of magic, illusion, and intrigue that will transport you to the odd-ball fairgrounds of yesteryear. Look upon the horrific “Living Head”, shut your eyes tight at the “Bed of Pain”, and be shocked by the legendary “Man Eating Chicken”. Partake in some fairground games before the show and rediscover the power of the unknown. Unreserved seating. Suitable for family audiences.
