An evening of Clairvoyancy with Steve Holbrook, Thursday 30th May 2019

Guests are invited to a psychic supper with Steve Holbrook, spiritualist medium, including a two course set dinner for only £24.95 per person.

Ex-hairdresser Steve Holbrook, regarded by many as one of the UK’s top Clairvoyant Mediums, explains how he hears the voices of our loved ones that have passed away.

Steve has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charities over the years, £50 000 for his local hospice in Wakefield, £5000 for MacMillan Support, and most recently our current total for PACT – a charity that helps terminally ill children and their parents across the country – is almost £30 000. He is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this charity.
