THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED
THE BUDDY HOLLY 55TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
Jenny Docherty has been a practising medium for over 25 years and has developed her own unique style/way of working. Her bubbly, fun and outgoing personality effortlessly lights up a room and this is what makes her unique. She delivers her messages with love, light and humour and with profound accuracy. Jenny has given readings to Arabic Royalty and celebrities and continues to work hard for spirits to and bring comfort to people’s lives.
In January 1959 Buddy Holly began a tour of America’s mid-west but due to an untimely airplane accident on the 3rd February, Buddy was lost to us forever.
Her work has taken her the length and breadth of Britain demonstrating her gift in theatres centres and churches. She has helped raise money for several good causes including local charities KIDS The Rainbow Trust and Aiden Walking Appeal and many more. She has appeared in Woman Weekly Fate and Fortunes (Take a Break). Jenny has a brilliance not to be missed.
That day would eventually become known as The Day The Music Died. 55 years on, we present a celebration of Buddy’s music. From the early songs such as Blue Days, Black Nights and Rock Around With Ollie Vee to True Love Ways, and It Doesn’t Matter Anymore. This show proves that the music did not indeed die but lives on and is as vibrant and relevant as ever.

Move on to 1979, ‘The Crazy Tour’, deemed to be one of Queen’s most exhilarating performances within the Queen fraternity, Queen certainly hit the peek of their live performances on this highly regarded tour.

The second half celebrates Queen’s most successful and famous tour - ‘The Magic Tour’.

A two-hour audiovisual show presented by retired murder squad detective Trevor Marriott, who in addition to concluding a long and protracted cold case investigation into the serial killer Jack the Ripper, has made an extensive study into other serial killers from around the world? He is the author of the highly acclaimed best-selling book titled "The Evil Within -The World’s Worst Serial Killers" The show highlights the murders committed by 20 of the world’s worst serial killers, many of which may not be so familiar to the many people that take a great interest in the crime of serial killers. The show features over 200 photographs of not only the victims and their killers, but photographs from the original crime scenes, many of which will never have been seen before. Trevor Marriott not only portrays the killers as the monsters whom they are, but goes to great lengths to show the errors and bad decisions made by law enforcement officers in allowing some of these killers to roam free to kill again before finally being captured, as well as showing the pain and suffering the victims endured before succumbing to death, and the anguish suffered by the relatives of the victims when publicly confronting some of the killers. NB Many of the photographs are of a graphic nature, which some people may find disturbing. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Remember to pre-order you interval drinks before the show starts 30
