Summary

TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW!

Shopping centres, school theatres and gymnasiums are bursting with everything from acrobatics to comedy as Back To Ours returns to take over local venues during the October half-term holiday.

Those who came along in February and May were treated to the mesmerising circus show Tipping Point by Ockham’s Razor along with some French hilarity courtesy of Untied Artists’ The Boy Who Bit Picasso. Music fans got their rave on to The Pigeon Detectives, and the likes of Cher and Shirley Bassey (a.k.a. Ceri Dupree) went down a storm in a night that will prove hard to forget.

In October, we return with even more spectacular surprises in your neighbourhood, so make sure you don’t miss out – bring everyone back to ours!
