Having seen Riverdance a couple of times previous i knew i would love this show & it did not disappoint. The music, dancing & the solo female singer had a voice of an angel. The talent throughout the show was amazing. Loved it from start to finish.
Beauty, talent and artistry displayed in its finest, it made the heartbeat stronger!
We really enjoyed the show... just about everything was amazing!
Tickets bought as a gift for my mum . She absolutely loved every minute of it as did I. Good feel factor, amazing dancing and all round entertaining well worth going !
Absolutely fantastic show. Everything about it from the dancing, the musicians and the graphics were mesmerising. Enjoyed it so much that I’ve booked to see it again on Sunday!
Great dancing, fab live music and a few funny bits. Really enjoyed it, and they got a standing ovation so enuf said. If you like river dance you’ll love this
A rivetting performance by wonderful smiley people marred only by the fact that the couple next to us paid considerably less for their tickets.
What a great night they all were having a great time.I would have liked to stay and watch it again
We felt this was the best show we have seen, it had everything in it and the mix between Irish and Latin and the way it blended - stunning. Thank you to the cast and production team for excellent evening if pure entertainment. Martin and Anita , Fridays show.

What a fantastic show. The dancing was exceptional. Great musicians and brilliant cast
I've seen Heartbeat of Home twice now and have loved every moment of this gorgeous show. The dancing throughout is simply breathtaking and a joy to watch. Also loved the six on-stage musicians, all so very talented. I hope the Company will return to London in the not-too-distant future and perform for us again. Truly brilliant!
This show seamlessly mixes Irish dance with dance from other cultures including Spanish, African and Cuban together with contemporary dance to create an enchanting experience. If you like dance you'll love it

Fantastic show, booked by chance after seeing a preview on the one show. Amazing, gripping well done to all performers
The evening was tremendous in everyway, This is a show not to be missed. It was memorable in everyway for adults and children alike.
Having seen Riverdance several times I didn’t think it’s expertise and vibrancy could be bettered but it was! An amazing performance by all involved including the band
This show is worth going to see it was FABULOUS , if you missed seeing river dance this will not disappoint all the dancers and not forgetting the singer were just superb from start to finish this show was high octane non stop entertainment can’t recommend enough .
BEST SHOW WE HAVE SEEN IN YEARS.
Absolutely amazing dancing. Enjoyed the whole show. Would go and see it again. It would have been even better if I had a programme to explain the story. That’s why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.
Show was incredible. As someone who has an interest in both dance and Music it was amazing to see the various rhythms used for different styles of dance. Also to see that the band on stage were so involved in the actual production.
I booked this show last minute not knowing what to expect, what a treat I was in for, it is one of the best musical dance shows I have ever seen. The dancers, singers & musicians were all very talented. AMAZING!!!!!
The show was beyond excellent. You need to advertise more. Not enough people know about this show.
A fantastic evening out to watch a great show with amazing singers, dancers and musicians. What a treat!
Fantastic family evening would recommend this it was amazing
Brilliant show from start to finish, such amazing talent.
We really enjoyed it. Having seen Riverdance before & loving it. This was a bit different as there were more styles of dance in it. Of course plenty of the amazing toe tapping Irish dancing, but also some Flamenco & Latin as well. HIGHLY Recommend.
the show was outstanding, breathtaking and quite simply THE BEST
The musicians and dancers were simply SUPERB. To think they can generate such athleticism and enthusiasm show after show is a credit to them. I saw it advertised on the one show SO GLAD I DID If I were young again I would learn Irish dancing for sure. Thank you for such an inspiring night.
We loved the show, enjoyed every minute. Got us up standing at the end, lovely music, incredible dancing and overall unforgettable!
I’m a regular to dance shoes and this is of the highest order. Quality exudes from all angles, dancers, band,routines, singer and set. Brilliant 😆
The energy on stage is explosive with a deep emotional connection
This show is an electrifying, high energy production of vibrant dance and music. Embracing cultural traditions from every continent. Standing ovations!!!
