Irish dance group Riverdance has announced a 30th anniversary UK tour and they’ll be stopping in Oxford for six shows next year.

Riverdance rose to become a headline act after being featured during the interval of the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin.

American dancers Michael Flatley and Jean Butler were among the original performers who captured the Eurovision audience when they delivered an eight-minute dance on April 30, 1994, at The Point Theatre.

The group, which has its roots in Irish dancing, will be touring 30 UK venues in 2025 to celebrate its milestone.
