Hi neighbours, by Popular Demand NZ Medium Kelvin Cruickshank has rescheduled his Rotorua Show!

Passing on messages from people who have died and are in spirit is what Kelvin was put on earth to do.

However, since the incredible success of Sensing Murder there's been such a great demand from people on this side wanting private readings that is just not physically possible for him to do them anymore.

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 now in the white light, and their spirit lives on.

Date: 2nd December 2019
Location: Rydges Rotorua (272 Fenton Street, Glen home, Rotorua)
Show Time: 7pm - 9:30pm
Ticket price $70.00
Book now!
