“We’ve got to Salute Jade Thirlwall for all she’s done for The Customs House over the years, as although the X Factor can Change Your Life, as if by Black Magic, she’s still supporting her home theatre where it all began.”

As a result of the coronavirus lockdown its events are being rescheduled and booked tickets are being transferred to the new dates which can be found on the Customs House website.
