Talented youngsters from Tina Counsell’s School of Dance, based in Baker Street, will be performing in a show at The Playhouse.

Tina Counsell Presents The Showtime Express promises to be a whistle-stop adventure packed with songs and dance.

Audiences will be taken on a journey around various locations while dancers, aged from four years old to adult, will demonstrate different dance styles from across the world.

Tina told the Mercury: “We are going on a train and stopping off at different locations and sampling the dancing and music of those locations.

Tickets, priced £14 for adults and £12 for children, are available from 01934 645544 or online via
