Anton Du Beke: Ballroom To Broadway (dance)

It's a while now since Strictly Come Dancing fever swept the country again, but the spin-off shows are still on the road and this year there are two hitting Eastbourne. The first was Brendan Cole's Licence To Thrill and next will be Anton Du Beke with Ballroom To Broadway. Strangely though, it seems as though his only performance here will be a Thursday afternoon matinee?

Anton has been on tour since the 16th of January with his thrilling new show. Produced by Raymond Gubbay, Ballroom To Broadway features memorable dances to conjure up the elegance of Ballroom at its best and the unmissable razzle dazzle of Broadway. The Raymond Gubbay Big Band Orchestra will be conducted by Richard Balcombe and the the guest singer is Strictly favourite Lance Ellington. We are promised music from the likes of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Jerry Herman and Andrew Lloyd Webber with songs including You're The Top, Anything Goes and Hushabye Mountain.

Congress Theatre, Thu 6th Mar, 14:30.
Tickets £38.50 / £32.50, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person at the Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
