An Evening of Clairvoyance

Ronnie Buckingham

Ronnie's aim is to reconnect members of the audience with friends and loved ones in the spirit world, and to pass on what they want to say. Often the communication includes snippets of information that although seemingly trivial to most of the audience, are highly significant to the recipient. Sceptical? Come along and make up your own mind.

Tickets: £15
