#DIGMAS 2017 – The Entertainment

Posted by Chris Pettitt on November 16, 2017

There’ll be loads and loads going on across the day at #DIGMAS, so it’s important there’s a melodic selection of festive entertainment soundtracking the day! So we have arranged for a couple of VERY special music acts to provide the tunes as well as the return of a very popular storytelling team who are ready to captivate and delight all over again!

~ The Music ~

Dizney Rascal

What happens when you take all your favourite Disney songs and turn them into huge sing-a-long anthems?

The answer is DIZNEY RASCAL!

Hailing from the Birmingham, these movie music bandits throw down the gauntlet with a no holds bar sing-a-long show that would get even the dastardly Cruella De Vil tapping her feet! Dressed in full costume, with plenty of Disney trivia and audience interaction thrown in, this fun-filled show is a must for any fan!

The Miss Fortunes

Miss Fortunes are a Midlands based retro harmony outfit who bring a little cheeky sass to every performance! For this one off #DIGMAS special Miss Fortunes will be performing Christmas hits mashed up with vintage classics & modern hits.

Join the ladies for lots of festive fun with a nod to yesteryear.
