The Super Theatre, featuring all five presenters, Jason Bradbury, Pollyanna Woodward, Suzi Perry, Ortis Deley, Jon Bentley, at The Gadget Show Live has been extended this year to cater for 2,000 more people per show (each show seats 6,000 people and takes place three times daily), following increasing popular demand.

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.
