Due to unprecedented demand, Diversity have added six new dates to their already mammoth tour of the UK and Ireland. A new date has been added to Gateshead, as well as Eastbourne, Northampton. Cornwall and Peterborough.
The tour will now begin a day earlier than originally planned, starting on Thursday, October 12 2023 at the Eastbourne Congress Theatre. The tour now spans 74 dates across 40 towns and cities.
The dance group rose to fame in 2009 when they won the third season of Britain’s Got Talent, beating Susan Boyle in the final. They are fronted by Ashley Banjo, who regularly presents Dancing on Ice on ITV.
This tour, ‘Supernova’ follows on from their recent and successful Connected tour. It combined playful, comedic routines with powerful statements on human connectivity. Big, relentless and energetic, the tour dazzled fans across the UK.
As they prepare for their brand new tour, Diversity are currently preparing to launch Diversity Studios. It will offer in person and live streamed dance classes.

Fans had just one opportunity to see the dance group but will now get to see them a day earlier, as they will perform at Sage Gateshead on Wednesday, February 14 2024 as well as the original date of Thursday, February 15.
