World-renowned choreographer Matthew Bourne is set to set the stage alight once again with a brand new international tour which will celebrate some of his earlier work – and it includes a run in Bath.

Early Adventures includes three of Bourne’s works which helped launch his undeniably successful career.

His focus on contemporary dance and dance theatre will be celebrated with performances of Town And Country, The Infernal Galop and Watch With Mother.

The latter has not been performed for almost 25 years and is sure to thrill on its return.

For your chance to see a range of different dance styles and performances all in one place, head to the Theatre Royal in Bath.

Early Adventures will be at the Theatre Royal, in Saw Close, from tonight (Thursday) until Saturday with performances every night at 7.30pm and 2.30pm on Saturday.

Tickets, priced £21-35.50, are available by calling 01225 448844 or online at
