Diversity's biggest tour yet comes to Stockton


Britain’s most-successful dance group, Diversity, have announced their brand-new UK and

Ireland tour, Supernova. The 66-date tour takes place across 40 towns and cities throughout

2023 and 2024. Tickets including Stockton Globe, go on general sale Friday 18th

November at 10am via www.stocktonglobe.co.uk


Supernova follows Diversity’s sold-out Connected tour earlier this year, which combined

playful, comedic routines with powerful statements on human connectivity. Big, relentless,

and energetic, the tour dazzled fans across the UK.


Diversity took the nation by storm when they won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent in

2009 and have since sold out multiple UK and Irish tours, with countless television and live

performances. Alongside preparing for their brand-new tour, and in keeping with their

progressive, innovative nature, Diversity are currently preparing to launch Diversity Studios,

which will offer in person and live streamed dance classes.


Last month, Ashley Banjo was awarded an MBE for his services to dance. Alongside

choreographing and performing with Diversity, Ashley has been committed to educating

people on dance, becoming a judge on Dancing on Ice, and offering his expertise as a host

and creative in the BAFTA nominated The Real Full Monty and International Emmy Award,

Broadcast Award, and Royal Television Society Award winning The Real Full Monty: Ladies

Night. Ashley also had the honour of becoming a co-presenter at the Pride of Britain Awards

last year, working alongside Carol Vorderman.


Jordan Banjo has also hosted a variety of TV shows, including two series of BBC 1’s

Primetime and BAFTA-nominated show The Greatest Dancer. Jordan along with Perri Kiely

are also part of breakfast radio royalty, presenting Kiss Breakfast every weekday.


Diversity’s illustrious career shows how they continue to innovate, grow, and achieve.

Collectively Diversity recently won Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment of 2020 at the British

Academy Television Awards for their incredible Britain’s Got Talent routine, watch here.


Diversity have also confirmed that they will be supporting anti-poverty charity the Trussell

Trust, which provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty while

campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Right now, millions of

people across the country are facing a cost of living crisis as food and energy prices soar and families are feeling the biggest squeeze on incomes in a generation. Attendees on the tour are being invited to bring along food donations to the shows, where there will be collection points across the venue each night. There will also be collection buckets for any cash donations.


All donations will be distributed to people in crisis across the 1,300 food bank

centres in the Trussell Trust network. For more information on the items that are requested:
