El Caballo Blanco
El Caballo Blanco is a celebration of the Spanish horse. In a specially constructed pavilion the audience is treated to a delicious meal and given the opportunity of watching magnificent and highly trained horses strut their stuff with style, precision and plenty of personality

Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox follows the trials and tribulations of a sly simple fox who tries to feed his family despite the protestations of three greedy farmers who have too much poultry and far too much ego to share their good fortune with those less privileged.

Hayley Clare
Hayley Clare looks like an angel and has the voice to match. She may not be well known - yet - but a large following turned out to see her sing with her quintet of jazz musicians at Bennett’s Lane

Eva Yerbabuena
That Eva’s been dancing since 12 should surprise noone, since she does it with such consummate self-assuredness: while I’m gasping, in anxious anticipation of a fatal error, she’s dancing her heart and soul out.

Shaolin Warriors

The monks' current touring show, Legendary Masters of Kung Fu, has a much more integrated theatrical approach, with acts blending comfortably into one another and plenty of fast-paced ensemble action. It's not short on entertainment, even for Kung Fu virgins like myself.

Madeleine Peyroux
The beautifully delicate crooning of Madeleine Peyroux, weighted with pained honesty of heart ache, loneliness and yearning, seems to be more suited to a more intimate venue rather than the vast space of the State Theatre.
