A tumbling TV star will make her triumphant return to the Lancaster stage as part of a charity variety night.

Holly Johnstone from BBC1 acrobatic show Tumble, will star alongside a host of entertainers on ‘A Grand Night Out’ at the Lancaster Grand.

Holly partnered Steps singer Ian ‘H’ Watkins on the Saturday night show last year, where experts taught celebrities the skills of gymnastics and circus tumbling.

Holly, a trained circus performer who broke through when she won the Lancaster and Morecambe Newspapers Talent On Show in 2008, will be joined by Morecambe magician Kevin Cunliffe, teenage Bolton-le-Sands singer/songwriter Amy-Jo Clough, band Aurora, musician Pete Lashley, Liondon comedienne Pam Ford, the Ludus Dance group from Lancaster, and Steven Hall, famed for ‘dad dancing’ all the way to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent.

John ‘Gilly’ Gillmore from BBC Radio Lancashire will compere the night on Saturday, January 31, which will raise funds for Alzheimer’s research.

A research group at Lancaster University have developed a drug which has the potential to stop Alzheimer’s in its tracks and ‘A Grand Night Out’ will launch the campaign to raise funds.

Tickets are only £10, or £8 for concessions, and every penny goes straight to the laboratory to fund the development of the drug. Available from 01524 64695.
