APRIL 2018 NEWSLETTER

Hello to everybody
Well here we are in April and heading rapidly towards the merry month of May! You would hardly think that we are well on the way to Summer, what with the weather that we’ve been having lately. Snow at Easter is virtually unknown in our part of the world but the mini Beast from the East managed to send a few flakes our way. Hopefully now we can look forward to more sunshine and warmth, and that the days of having four seasons in one twenty-four hour period are over.
The beginning of April of course saw us celebrating Easter with my first theatre date for the month at Brierley Hill Civic Hall in Dudley falling on the 5th April. It’s always a huge pleasure to visit that particular venue because everybody is so very friendly. On the 7th April I was Haverhill Arts Centre all the way down in Suffolk. Again, a lovely warm-hearted venue and always a pleasure to demonstrate there. My next dates for the month are as follows:-
15 April The Concert Hall, Motherwell Box Office 01698 403120
21 April Gwyn Hall, Neath Box Office 0300 365 6677
25 April Theatre Royal, St. Helens Box Office 01744 756000
27 April Pavilion Theatre, Rhyl Box Office 01745 330000
If you would like to join me on any of the above dates then tickets can be obtained via the box office telephone numbers of by visiting the Tour page of my web site www.derekacorah.com I would warn that tickets are selling quickly and especially in the case of Neath, are in very short supply.
All other dates for my theatre appearances going forward in to the year can of course also be found on the Tour section of www.derekacorah.com New dates are frequently being added and so it is worth checking back on a weekly basis to see whether I am scheduled to appear in a town near you. I have had an enormous amount of people requesting that I return to Ireland as I missed my visit there last year. I am pleased to say that my agent is in talks at the moment and it looks highly likely that I will be appearing in the Emerald Isles some time in October/November of this coming autumn. The locations under discussion are Cookstown, Carrickmacross, Ballybofay and Belfast. As soon as dartes are confirmed I will be publishing them on my web site.
The Derek Acorah Radio Show is now very well established and has proved to be an enormous success with people tuning in every Tuesday at 7.30 p.m. to hear Paul Cissell and myself, together with our invited guest for the week. You can join in and listen by clicking the Radio tab on my web site www.derekacorah.com Every week we have a new and fascinating guest and each person covers different subjects and their thoughts on the paranormal/spirituality. It really is a programme not to be missed. If you find it difficult to be available at 7.30 p.m. on a Tuesday evening then the programme is repeated throughout the whole of the following week at 12 a.m., 4.00 a.m., 10.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. This means that wherever you are in the world then you do not have to miss out. I am proud to say that we have had some fascinating guests joining us over the weeks and plan on having many more throughout the year.
It’s that time of the year when the nominations for the Soul & Spirit Magazine awards are being requested. Everybody has been very kind in the past and has put my name forward, so could I ask you once again that you nominate me for 2018? To vote, and also be in with a chance of winning some great prizes, all you have to do is fill in the form at http://www.soulandspiritmagazine.com/awards/ There is the opportunity for you to win some wonderful prizes by taking part in the nominations too so it is well worth taking time to join in the voting.
I have a little time off at the beginning of May so I will be taking the opportunity to travel over to Spain to see how things are doing over there. By that time I am hoping that the weather will be perfect in that it won’t be too hot and that any wet weather will have gone for the summer. As in the case of the United Kingdom this winter, Spain hasn’t had it’s usual balmy weather throughout the winter months and friends who live there have been very disappointed at having to muffle up in heavy winter clothing.
I would like to remind you about the wonderful charity of which Gwen and myself are Patrons…. Pathfinder Guide Dog Programme. A big thank you to those of you who have been generous enough to donate already but the need for funds is an ongoing thing in order that the seeing dogs provided by the charity receive life-long support and veterinary care, and this does not come cheaply so every penny helps. If you would like to learn more about Pathfinders then please visit their web site www.pathfinderdogs.org where you can see how you can help in raising funds as well as donating cash.
Just a note to let you know also that which.net is sadly closing down their email service which means that my email address [email protected] will cease to exist after 24th May. I have had this address for so long…. since the mid 1990’s and so I will be sorry to lose it. However, should you wish to contact me then you can do so through the Contact page of my web site, or should you have enquiries as to my availability then please contact either Brian Shaw or Gareth Boycott of Brian Shaw Concerts Limited who will be able to help. They can be contacted on [email protected] or [email protected]
I will leave by wishing you all a wonderful April and hope that the month brings you all the joy you could wish for.
