Here's our guide to make the most of the extra day this leap year.
From Laois in Ireland, Noel Fitzpatrick is now renowned as The Supervet. His title comes from the Channel 4 TV smash (now in it’s seventh season) that follows Fitzpatrick and his team at one of the largest, independent veterinary referral centres in the UK.
The show sees Fitzpatrick perform complex surgeries and procedures on hard-to-cure animals, as well as exploring the important bond between humans and their pets.
His history, opening Fitzpatrick Referrals in 2005 and going on to become a pioneer of new surgical techniques, is both interesting and entertaining.
Alongside speaking regularly to the veterinary and medical industry, he also presents his experiences to the public. As well as appearing at exhibitions and shows across the globe, he’s now announced huge UK headline shows.
The groundbreaking new show will see Noel Fitzpatrick tell audiences about his life story, and how over time he became one of the most recognised and revered vets on the planet.
Join Noel on a journey from his early years in Ireland, where he was full of fantastical ideas through to today where the future of medicine is full of incredible promise. Welcome To My World is a deeply immersive experience, which will transport Noel into a virtual theatre thanks to the very latest in creative technology, allowing him to illustrate some of his remarkable techniques in front of the audience.
Speaking of the show, Noel Fitzpatrick says: “Come with me on my journey from a field in Ireland to a fantastical world of bionics and regeneration, where everything becomes possible. I am so excited to bring to you my live show and share with you my story. Welcome to my world.”
