Now in their 6th year of touring the band ensures an accurate portrayal and is a true impersonation of the sounds, look and feel of the sensational Take That live in concert.

And from another musical era, ‘Halfway To Paradise – The Billy Fury Storycomes to the Memorial on Saturday 23rd August, 7.30pm.

Billy Fury was Britain’s own Elvis….and girls loved him! 31 years after his untimely death, Billy’s own band – his original Fury’s Tornados remember him by re-playing live his timeless 29 hit records – ‘Wondrous Place’, ‘Last Night Was Made For Love’, ‘I Will’, ‘A Thousand Stars’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Halfway To Paradise’ and many, many more.

See Billy come alive with his Fury’s Tornados on giant screen – the atmosphere is both electric…and emotional. Colin Gold as Fury is just sensational. Introduced by Billy’s long time partner, Lisa Voice.
