Steve Holbrook, The Wellwood, Amble, Wednesday, February 22. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets cost £16 in advance or £17 on the door.
AMBLE may be the location of a link between this world and the next, as medium Steve Holbrook visits the town for the first time next week.
Steve, regarded by many as Britain’s most gifted clairaudient medium, is on a nationwide tour and looking forward to being back on home soil after a successful tour of the USA and the Caribbean. He will try to prove that our loved ones don’t die, they simply move on to another dimension.
Steve describes himself as a telephone exchange between this world and the next, and while many mediums see the spirits they connect with, Steve hears them, hence the title clairaudient rather than clairvoyant.
Steve has a down-to-earth, sympathetic approach towards his mediumship, and promises an emotional roller-coaster ride for his audiences, always full of laughter and tears.
This is one of the reasons Steve is being promoted all over the country by the UK’s two largest newspaper groups, and is in constant demand to increase his workload due to his popularity.
Steve has, in the past, helped the police on a murder investigation, so highly regarded is he.
Even hardened critics and sceptics will leave his demonstration uncomfortably challenged.
Over the last few years Steve has raised tens of thousands of pounds for local charities (notably the hospice movement) and has raised over £50,000 for his local hospice in Wakefield, together with over £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2007.
He now raises money for PACT, a Sheffield-based charity that helps terminally-ill children all over the country who have cancer and leukaemia, and the current total is more than £15,500, but money from this event will add to the total.
He is determined that his charitable commitments will increase in the future – hopefully helping some lesser-known institutions which don’t usually get the limelight, publicity or the funding.
