JANUARY can always seems quite a dull month, but not when Brendan Cole comes waltzing into town.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, whose performances are known for selling tickets by the bucket load, will be coming to the Cliffs Pavilion next month!

All Night Long promises to be "full on high energy dance dynamite", up close and personal, with scintillating guest dancers, and a scorching 14 piece band and singers.

It will feature superb choreography, stunning lighting, amazing special effects.

The audience gets to see every style of ballroom and Latin dance from Brendan and his hand-picked championship dancers (each new production features a different cast) performed to the music and songs of some of the greatest legends and contemporary artistes.

Every new production features at least eight dancers and 14 musicians and singers, with of course dozens of costume changes and great songs.

Brendan is one of only two professionals to have competed in the entire Strictly Come Dancing TV series.

He danced the first dance on the first show and won first prize and has now just embarked on the 14th year of the show. His partners have included Natasha Kaplinsky; Kelly Brook; Lisa Snowdon; Jo Wood; Victoria Pendleton, Sunetra Sarker; Kirsty Gallacher; Sophie Ellis-Bextor; and pop star Anastacia.

Alongside his TV appearances, Brendan has presented eight concert tours including Live and Unjudged, Licence to Thrill and A Night To Remember.

The show comes to the Cliffs Pavilion on Saturday, January 27, at 8pm.

Tickets are £40.50, £38.50 and £31, available from southendtheatres.org.uk or by claling the box office on 01702 351135.
