Steve has had a lifelong belief in life beyond the grave.

As a child he “woke to find five soldiers marching through his bedroom” – “an early glimpse of what was to come”.

While working as a hairdresser he developed his ability to hear the voices of spirits – and became the most in demand hair stylist with a six-week waiting list.

This eventually led him to wonder if the clients kept coming back for his hairdressing ability or the possibility they might receive a message from a relative who had “passed away”.

Nowadays Steve offers messages of reassurance to people who have lost loved ones and makes them understand life goes on in a different way.

He uses an example of when a lady’s mum came through to him saying: “Don’t forget the brown Prada handbag on Friday”, meaning to remind the daughter to place the handbag in her coffin.

Steve has also helped a celebrity through his messages.

He told singer Jane McDonald she would be in a cruise entertainment documentary and a year later she starred in The Cruise, making her a household name. She dedicated her auto-biography to Steve her ‘best friend and spiritual advisor’.

Steve has raised money for numerous charities including £50,000 for his local hospice, £5,000 for Macmillan support and £21,000 for PACT.

Tickets cost £16 when ordered by phoning 01253 361713 or £17 if purchased on the night.

Doors at 7pm, with the evening of clairvoyance beginning at 7.30pm.
