Lateral writes, produces, promotes and tours public events in major theatres.

We bring a fresh genre to live entertainment by inviting globally acclaimed personalities, each a global leader in their field, with whom we can create new live stage shows that concurrently educate, entertain, excite and inspire audiences.

Already in 2017, Sir David Attenborough completed his fourth tour with Lateral, touring New Zealand and Australia to sold-out theatres.

In August 2017 we welcome back astronaut Chris Hadfield, former commander of the International Space Station (ISS). Commander Chris Hadfield will appear in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

In November 2017 Professor Brian Cox returns for his debut tour of New Zealand and fourth Lateral tour of Australia, appearing in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Further announcements of new tours will be made shortly.

Past shows have included British chef Heston Blumenthal, Monty Python’s Michael Palin, author Bill Bryson, historian Neil Oliver and cycling legends Phil Liggett, Jens Voight, Rohan Dennis and Simon Gerrans.
