However, it quickly became clear that their new business would be much more than just a ‘posh’ off-licence. They promised to bring this famous shop…

But Ruddington’s ‘Freedom Dance & Performance’ has always aimed big – and consequently has found perhaps rather more than its fair share of ‘Fame’ along the way!?
