The stage show is an hour long, high energy, live theatre version of the TV show featuring tech challenges and audience competitions with Suzi Perry, Ortis Deley, Jon Bentley, Jason Bradbury and Pollyanna Woodward. The Super Theatre performance promises to excel itself on last years show, with the five presenters with some amazing technology and challenges in a massive new 6,000 seat arena.

The Gadget Show Live takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from 11 to 15 April and, in addition to the live stage show, offers more interactive features than ever before and the chance to test out and buy the latest gadgets. Now in its fourth year, the event is widely recognised as the best place to see, try and buy the latest consumer technology. With three of the five days already sold out only limited tickets remain available for the 11 th and 12 th of April. Tickets can be booked online at  www.gadgetshowlive.net.  

Visitors to The Gadget Show Live can also sit on the famous red sofa from the TV programme and present their own short version of the show, which will be filmed and then appear on the Gadget Show Live ( www.gadgetshowlive.net) website.

This studio-based format of the show is being replaced in the next series (starting in April), with the new series featuring Jason and Pollyanna who will undertake an international gadget road trip. From Abu Dhabi to Silicon Valley, from New York to Monaco, the pair of gadget experts will give their verdict on the very latest high-street tech, as well as stopping off to showcase more cutting-edge technology.
