A series of four special shows, featuring performances from your favourite musicals, are taking place in London in November. Here’s everything we know about them.

The arts has suffered a massive blow in the pandemic. A number of pantomimes have been cancelled, meaning many theatres are coping with big financial losses. And Dame Judi Dench talked about how she fears she won’t see some of her favourite spaces reopen in her lifetime.

But some productions are slowly getting back on their feet.

Six the Musical
Musicals are coming back to London, including Six.

The shows will provide employment to out-of-work performers and will raise money for theatrical charities, including Acting for Others and The Fleabag Support Fund. Of course, seating capacity in the theatre has been reduced and social distancing will be in place to help keep everybody safe. 

Tickets start from £22.50 and are available from The Show Must Go On website. They’re selling out fast, so make sure you get your hands on a pair.
