Brendan Cole: Licence To Thrill (dance)

Brendan Cole's theatre tour Licence To Thrill was so popular in 2013 that it is returning for 2014. Hosted by Brendan himself, the two-hour dance spectacular, with its 14 piece orchestra and international dance cast promises audiences a night of Ballroom and Latin Magic.

Some of Britain's best musicians will be led by MD Barry Robinson with vocalists Julie Maguire and Iain Mackenzie. Music has been chosen from across the ages to suit each dance and there will be a sprinkling of Bond themes too - hence the show's title. The dancers are Brendan Cole (obviously!), Fauve Hautot, Patrick Helm, Melanie Hooper, Scott Cole and Crystal Main. All of Strictly Come Dancing's favourite dances are included so we can expect elegant waltzes and foxtrots, showy quicksteps, tangos and American smooths, and the party atmosphere of the Latin dances - the cha cha, samba, salsa and jive. 

Congress Theatre, Thu 16th Jan, 19:30.
Tickets £29.50, £33, £35, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person from the Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
