All ticket holders will be contacted via email over the next week with an update and options – please keep an eye on your email inboxes.

Discover a secret underworld of Dad dancing, inspired by the experts – the Dads.
Interviewing and dancing with their Dads, the creative team revealed secret headphone and tambourine routines, African Dance lovers, 1960s garage party dancing and so much more.
The team have taken inspiration from their family histories, memories of dance, and their own experience of being professional dancers.
It’s not all daggy dad dance moves, although there’s a few, but a beautiful foray into the layman’s perspective on art.
