Britain’s most-successful dance group, Diversity, have announced a brand-new UK and Ireland tour, across 40 towns and cities throughout 2023 and 2024 – including Ipswich Regent Theatre on 26 and 27 March 2024.
Supernova follows Diversity’s sold-out Connected tour earlier this year, which combined playful, comedic routines with powerful statements on human connectivity. Big, relentless, and energetic, the tour dazzled fans across the UK.
Diversity took the nation by storm when they won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 and have since sold out multiple tours, with countless television and live performances.
Last month, Ashley Banjo was awarded an MBE for his services to dance. Alongside choreographing and performing with Diversity, Ashley has been committed to educating people on dance, becoming a judge on Dancing on Ice, and offering his expertise as a host and creative in the BAFTA nominated The Real Full Monty and International Emmy Award, Broadcast Award, and Royal Television Society Award winning The Real Full Monty: Ladies Night. Ashley also had the honour of becoming a co-presenter at the Pride of Britain Awards last year, working alongside Carol Vorderman.
Jordan Banjo has also hosted a variety of TV shows, including two series of BBC 1’s Primetime and BAFTA-nominated show The Greatest Dancer. Jordan along with Perri Kiely are also part of breakfast radio royalty, presenting Kiss Breakfast every weekday.
Diversity’s illustrious career shows how they continue to innovate, grow, and achieve. The dance group recently won Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment of 2020 at the British Academy Television Awards for their incredible Britain’s Got Talent routine.
Diversity have also confirmed that they will be supporting anti-poverty charity the Trussell Trust. Audience members for the tour are being invited to bring along food donations to the shows, where there will be collection points across the venue each night. There will also be collection buckets for any cash donations, with all donations given to the Trussell Trust network. For more information on suitable items to donate visit: https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-involved/ways-to-give/donate-food/.
Alongside preparing for their brand-new tour, and in keeping with their progressive, innovative nature, Diversity are currently preparing to launch Diversity Studios, which will offer in person and live streamed dance classes.
Tickets for the Ipswich Regent Theatre shows on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 March 2024 will go on sale at 10am this Friday 18 November 2022 at www.ipswichtheatres.co.uk
