Amazing Grace is now halfway through its North East tour and the reviews are flooding in. After a sell-out opening night we were hoping for great things and we haven’t been disappointed. And it’s not too late to catch one of the remaining shows: Friday 26th Hartlepool Town Hall; Saturday 27th Gateshead Town Hall; Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th Customs House, South Shields; Wednesday 31st  Blyth Phoenix; Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd November Maltings Berwick and finally Saturday 3rd November Whitley Bay Playhouse. For full details and box office numbers see the Amazing Grace play page.
