Derek Acorah: The Eternal Spirits Tour
Swansea Grand Theatre
Battling with hay fever, psychic medium Derek Acorah apologised to the crowd as he wiped his nose.
"It's just a little allergy," he said, and he didn't want to 'drip' on any of them.

He also went on to explain that, luckily, the front row weren't any closer to the action. Because when he gets really carried away communicating with the spirits, he has a tendency to spit. And not just drops – projectile spit.
All of which might have left some wishing they'd brought a cagoule to the performance, rather than their customary crystals and charms.
Marking an upsurge in popularity, Derek had a larger crowd in attendance than his previous visit to the Swansea Grand Theatre.
And they were in fine, if sometimes drunken, voice throughout.
His usual charming self, Derek opened the show with a cheeky dig at a former Most Haunted colleague, before energetically bounding around the auditorium passing on messages seemingly from beyond the grave via his spirit guide Sam.
These varied in accuracy and specifics, with the majority of the spirits seeming intent on following their loved ones home following the show – even if merely to brush their heads or to move an object or two.
Despite rumours that this might be his final tour, if Derek were to return next year, there would certainly a crowd to welcome him.
