“So many local businesses have supported the nights – donating prizes and even selling tickets for the shows so we’d like to say a big thanks to all who have supported Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. We are now attracting attention from national press after receiving rave reviews from performers impressed by the Lichfield crowds – each of our 2009 shows sold out and we hope to have plenty of sellouts this year.

“The next show is going to be a real cracker. Fred Bear wowed audiences with his performance back in June and now returns to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with the rest of the Bears in tow. It’s definitely going to be one to remember so dress to impress and we’ll see you at the movie show!”
