Have seen this show a couple of times and it is a wonderful family show. I took my 14 year old son who thoroughly enjoyed himself dancing, singing and laughing at the bands banter. Hope to see them again next year.

Thank you for your feedback and we are very pleased to hear you all enjoyed the show. I would like to advise photos/filming was disallowed because this was what the Act requested. We hope you will return in the future.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the venue wasn't responsible for the sound it was the touring show that provided their own PA system for this. The Princes Theatre has recently had a brand new sound system installed that has received praise from visiting companies...More

Had a brilliant night out enjoying every minute of Belinda Davids singing. First time I've been back since Belinda Davids concert and great to see new seats as I did review last September having spent the evening avoiding a huge hole in the seat.
