Katy Ellis as Taylor Swift & Tom Whitehead as Ed Sheeran


When: Sunday 22nd September 2024

Where: Binks Yard in Nottingham

If you’re a fan of pop, this is definitely one to consider. The UK’s best Taylor Swift tribute with support from an Ed Sheeran tribute comes to Nottingham in September. 

Even just quickly thinking about Swift and Sheeran, the number of massive hits between them is incredible. These are tracks just about everyone knows since they’ve shot to number one on the charts. So you know you’re going to know just about every song.

Since we all know that getting tickets to the Eras tour is next to impossible, we think this event will hit the spot nicely.
