World's No.1 Michael Jackson tribute

World's No.1 Michael Jackson tribute

Led by the world’s number one Michael Jackson tribute artist ‘Navi’, which alone sets this show above the rest. Navi is the only MJ tribute ever to be chosen by Michael Jackson himself. Michael actually gave Navi a standing ovation after he was invited to perform at one of the MJ’s birthday parties in Los Angeles. They remained friends and Navi was regularly hired as a body double and decoy to distract fans and press when Michael visited the UK.

Now, for a limited number of dates, Navi will be joined on stage by Michael’s original guitarist Jennifer Batten for a string of UK dates in 2018 & 2019 (selected shows only). Jennifer performed with Michael on all three world tours (Bad, Dangerous, History) and the iconic Superbowl half-time show.

Along with his incredible live band and dancers, Navi is currently taking theatres across the globe by storm with his thrilling new show that will take you closer than you ever imagined to an original Jackson concert.

Featuring hits such as Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Black or White, Man In The Mirror and the ‘Jackson Five’ classics in a show suitable for the whole family.

Meet & Greet tickets on sale now for only £34 – includes premium seating, a VIP lanyard and access to the post-show meet and greet with Navi and Jennifer Batten.

UK Unsigned 2019

Sunday 6 October at 7pm

UK UNSIGNED - The UK’s biggest independent talent showcase

Sunday 6 October at 7pm

UK UNSIGNED - The UK’s biggest independent talent showcase

After 20 years of operation, UK UNSIGNED is the UK’s biggest independent talent showcase project for (non-televised) talent, with more categories and opportunities than any other production. Their showcases and workshops around the country extend to over 20 categories, providing the broadest base to consistently give new talent a platform to showcase their skills.

As they celebrate their 20th year, this season’s participants will have opportunities to win up to £20,000 worth of prizes. For some categories this includes overseas opportunities such as:

· Reggae Category (Song for Jamaica): Opportunity to perform at Rebel Salute, one of Jamaica’s premiere Reggae Festivals.

· Solo Dance Category (U CAN DANCE): Opportunity to perform in Antigua as part of the annual U CAN DANCE Caribbean showcase.

· Overall UK UNSIGNED Winner: The UK UNSIGNED Winners’ Winner (best performer across all categories) will get to showcase in Atlanta, USA in 2020.

This season’s series will culminate in their first ever National UK UNSIGNED Week between October 6 – 12. Activities will start with the UK UNSIGNED Grand Finals at the Broadway Theatre in Catford and ends with the Silver Dress Ball in Pall Mall (Oct 12).

UK UNSIGNED will be looking to select performers from the categories of cover singers, singer/songwriters, individual dancers, comedians, poets, MCs and dance groups to perform across National UK UNSIGNED Week as both contestants and as special performers. For the first time ever they shall also be ensuring that our categories include disabled participants, which is being co-ordinated by one of their members, Wind of Change in Milton Keynes.

Each category winner will be given a business support package within their prizes which will assist in developing strategies to enable them to be self-sustaining through their talent. Over the past 20 years, UK UNSIGNED have seen many changes and challenges to unsigned artists. They fully understand the real support needs they require to pursue their potential instead of pushing unrealistic pipe dreams. 

Other past successes of UK UNSIGNED participants include: Katie Melua and Leona Lewis who went on to become one of the UK’s highest earning female singers. The Flawless Dance Group, who continuously tour the UK with their special brand of theatre dance productions. However, the majority of our participants go on to pursue long term sustainable performance careers such as:

· Natalie Chua: Recently casted in “Bat Out Of Hell”: Dominion Theatre

· HBoss: SABA & UK Youth Ambassador

· Kathryn Kitchener: Casted in “Love Struck”: Cockpit Theatre, London

Our UK UNSIGNED showcases are part of a fundraising strategy to support their creative development projects. The main projects are the HiCrEc Project, Youth Apprenticeship Programme and You Digital Network (YDN).

The HiCrEc (Hidden Creative Economy) project works with creative industry practitioners who operate without mainstream support or recognition. Through various initiatives they help them to keep the productions of their talent maintained across the mainstream.

Their Youth Apprenticeship Programme works with excluded young people from disadvantaged communities. Supporting their transition from dysfunctional lifestyles through to gaining the skills to attain mainstream inclusion and long term careers.

Within the Your Digital Network (YDN) programme they help people to develop new skills within digital technology so they can pursue either employment opportunities of commercial start ups that can suit today’s environment.

Whilst music remains the main focus of UK UNSIGNED, other areas such as UK UNSIGNED Film, UK UNSIGNED Drama and UK UNSIGNED Fashion have given new UK based talent a real platform from which they can gain a stake in the Creative Industries. UK UNSIGNED are even introducing a skills development category where participants can explore opportunities around set design, sound engineering and event management.
