PETER Andre is celebrating 25 years in the spotlight and in recognition of this is undertaking a 25-date tour of the UK this month and next, one of which is Wednesday (February 15) when he will perform at the Sands Centre, Carlisle.

The singer's music career peaked in the 90s when he became the sixth highest selling artist in the UK. He had numerous number one hit singles, two number one albums and toured all over the world collecting a multitude of national and international accolades along the way.

In 2014 Peter released a brand-new swing sound to add to his collection, fully leaving behind his reggae sound captured in his infamous hit single Mysterious Girl! Box office 01228-633766.

Taking the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings as their inspiration, two performers combine rigorous physical theatre with anarchic comedy, deconstructing not only gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves. Expect wind, spooky houses and really bad coughs! This crazy show is on stage at The Brewery, Kendal, tonight (Thursday, 7.30pm).

Box office 01539-725133.

Tickets: Pay what you decide event.
