X-treme Magic, Sleeping Beauty and Circus Spectacular feature singer Gareth Gates, magicians Richard Cadell and Pete Firman, Peppa Pig’s Emma Grace Arends, Britain’s Got Talent’s Elizabeth Best and comedy performer Bippo. Social distancing will be in place to ensure a return to indoor live entertainment.
