Hello to Everybody Well I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I spent Christmas at home with my family which, as always, was so enjoyable. We love having the family around us at Christmas time because after all, that is what it’s all about. For the New Year we travelled to our home in Spain where we spent ten days in the peaceful Spanish surroundings. We were very fortunate in that the weather was kind to us. Our neighbours were telling us that prior to our arrival it had been quite cold and wet. We were fortunate in that we were able to join both the traditional New Year celebrations on the 31st December there and the Spanish Three Kings Day on 6th January. In Spain this is traditionally when children are given their presents rather than at Christmas time but I suspect that the children of the country these days are very fortunate and get gifts at both Christmas time and on the eve of Epiphany, the 5th January. We’re home now and have been fortunate in not catching the awful flu virus that has been going around though we did manage to contract a nasty cough and cold. This did not lay us low but was miserable nonetheless. We’re both getting over it and I’m determined to be free and clear of it by the time I hit the road again on the 20th January when I commence my 2018 Love Life Laughter Tour at Camberley Theatre, Camberley. I have two dates in January, the second one being on the 26th January at the Middlesbrough Theatre, Middlesbrough. If you would like to come along and join me then please telephone the box offices of the theatres and book your tickets. 20 Jan - Camberley Theatre, Camberley Box office 01276 707600 26 Jan - Middlesbrough Theatre, Middlesbrough Box office 01642 815181 January is always a bitter/sweet month for us. It is the month when our dogs, Milly and Merlin were born and so we celebrate their birthdays but it is also the month when we lost our beloved dogs Jack in January 2015 and Penny in January 2016. I know that many of you are pet lovers and are no strangers to the awfulness of losing a beloved pet to the world of spirit but please take comfort, as we do, in the fact that they are not lost to us forever. Just like us humans, animals pass over to the world of spirit and await our arrival along with the members of our family who have passed on to the spirit world before us. In February I commence my theatre tour proper. My dates for the month of February are as follows: 08 Feb - The Queens Hall, Narberth, Pembrokeshire Box office 01834 861212 09 Feb - Oakengates Theatre, Telford Box office 01952 382382 10 Feb - Gladstone Theatre, Port Sunlight Box office 0151 643 8757 23 Feb - Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe Box office 0844 854 2776 28 Feb - Winding Wheel, Chesterfield Box office 01246 345222 All further dates throughout 2018 for my Love Life Laughter Tour may be found on the Dates page of my web site at If your area is not listed at the moment then please don’t lose hope because there are still many more dates to be added to those already scheduled. If you feel that you would like to suggest a theatre or venue in your area then don’t hesitate to contact my manager/agent Brian Shaw of Brian Shaw Concerts Limited [email protected] Details of where I will be and what I will be doing can also be found on my official Derek Acorah Facebook page. Please don’t be misled by bogus pages. My page is recognisable by the blue verification tick. There is also the Official Derek Acorah Fan Club Facebook page where you can join in with talking to like-minded people and enjoy some of the fun topics that are up for discussion from time to time. Every week I make a live appearance on my official Derek Acorah Facebook page where I chat and talk to people and do my best to pass on some messages from the spirit world. This is usually an extremely busy session and you will have to forgive me in that the messages scroll up so quickly that it is impossible to read all of them. Joining in costs nothing at all and I pass on messages free of charge. I would ask that if you do happen to join me on one of my lives that you “like” and share my Facebook page in order that our spiritual community can grow. An exciting announcement for the month of February is that I will be launching my new internet Radio Show. You can access to listen by logging on to my web site and clicking on the Radio link. I will be talking about all sorts of subjects and will also be giving messages out as I do on the Facebook Live sessions. I will be joined by renowned medium Paul Cissell who is one of the world’s best teachers in spirituality and development of psychic and spiritual gifts. Paul and I will be inviting many guests to join us over the months and our talks will include all manner of subjects covering spirituality and the paranormal. I am very much looking forward to this new venture and hope that you will mark your diaries to ensure that you don’t miss the broadcasts. As ever I would ask that you continue to support the charity of which myself and Gwen are patrons, Pathfinder Guide Dog Programme by saving and sending milk and soft drink plastic bottle tops and all manner of other items for which the charity can generate much needed cash. If you would like to see details of how you can help then please visit I am looking forward to 2018 with positivity and enthusiasm and hope that you will be doing so too. We have a whole year ahead of us so let’s make it one of the best years ever. DEREK ACORAH
