The Empire is a very special place to me. As well as going there regularly since I was a child to see great shows, comedians, bands and pantomimes, it's also where I graduated as a mature student. And it's where my dad proposed to my mam.
And today I was part of a small group who went behind-the-scenes to see backstage at the magic.
Here are my pictures from the visit, I really hope you enjoy looking at them.
