    JULY 2019

    The Legacy Tour with Kelvin Cruickshank & TJ Higgs

    Friday 12 July 2019 - 7:00pm


    'The Legacy Tour' with Kelvin Cruickshank & TJ Higgs in honour of our late mentor Colin Fry 

    What happens when you mix two international superstar mediums together on one stage! NZs leading medium Kelvin Cruickshank is joining forces with the amazing UK medium TJ Higgs to honour the man that put them both on the map! Colin Fry. What better way to honour his memory than getting these two talents together to do what they do best! Come along to one of the shows to find out what they have in store. Not one but two mediums on stage working together! 

    Passing on messages from loved ones who have passed and are in spirit is what Kelvin was put on earth to do. TJ's passion is bringing peace of mind and resolution to those grieving for their departed, and allowing those in spirit to demonstrate their continued love. 

    Those attending will come away with a new perspective of the afterlife. Kelvin and TJ will both share messages from loved ones and show you how to keep in touch with those who have passed and help you to understand how the afterlife works. 

    When you come to these live shows, please come with an open heart and an open mind. Kelvin and TJ will try to read for as many people as possible but what happens on the night is up to spirit, not Kelvin and not TJ. So relax, chill out and enjoy the show, and you never know - it could be your loved ones who show up. And even if they don't, hopefully the evening will open your eyes to the fact those we've lost are really not that far away at all.
