On the evening of the official opening of the new Westlands Entertainment Venue, we are excited to announce that dance legend Darcey Bussell CBE will delight audiences with an inspiring discussion of her stunning career.

She has worked with Dame Margot Fonteyn, observed an ageing Nureyev, and danced for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as President Clinton and the president of China.
In 1985 at the age of 16, Darcey was accepted at the Royal Ballet’s National School in London, and in 1989 she became the youngest ever British ballerina to be given the honour of Principal dancer.
