Background


Following two critically acclaimed tours and a West End run, Footloose is back and better than ever with the incredible Gareth Gates (ITV's Pop Idol, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Les Miserables, Loserville, Legally Blonde) returning to give a "faultless" performance as loveable cowboy Willard. (Manchester Evening News).


Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, Footloose sizzles with spirit, fun and the best in UK musical talent.


With cutting edge modern choreography, you'll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let's Hear It For The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.
