DASHING dancers Diversity will mark their their tenth anniversary next year with their Born Ready tour, visiting York Barbican on October 1.

Since winning the third series of Britain’s Got Talent, beating Scottish singer Susan Boyle in front of 20 million television viewers, Diversity have presented eight UK tours, selling half a million tickets for their innovative shows.

Creator and choreographer Ashley Banjo says of the forthcoming tour: "Born Ready is such an incredibly special tour for the whole Diversity family. 2019 marks ten years since we won Britain’s Got Talent and since then we have continued to innovate, grow and achieve things that most said were impossible.

"Born Ready will not only celebrate this and look back at some of the iconic Diversity moments over the past decade, but it will also look forward to the future, at how Diversity continues to evolve and how we plan to pass what we’ve created on to the next generation. Be prepared for dance, illusions, mind-blowing stunts and inspiring stories that will hopefully leave people amazed."
