Tap your inner dancing queen for a new musical-meets-dining showcase

An all-singing all-dancing extravaganza is coming to the capital next year, in the form of a theatrical dining experience inspired by Mamma Mia! 

Fans of the unabashedly sunny musical will delight in Mamma Mia! The Party, an immersive event that will unfold in London’s O2 stadium.

Guests at the experiential performance will be transported to a “taverna” on the island of Skopelos, where they’ll tuck into a Greek meal accompanied by a riot of warming stories and ABBA songs.

At the end of the dinner, the main floor will be transformed into a 1970s disco, for people to boogie the night away to the likes of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! and Dancing Queen.

A super trouper time is guaranteed

Mamma Mia! The Party originally took place in ABBA’s homeland of Stockholm, Sweden (above), where it’s sold out three years in a row.

It aims to capture all the upbeat optimism of both ABBA and the Mamma Mia! film franchise, starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried.

If that’s not temptation enough for you, consider that the story for the event has been adapted by none other than Bake-Off presenter Sandi Toksvig.

“This has been a dream job writing this adaptation, mainly because I want to go to it myself,” Toksvig says.

Fancy escaping to a land of olive trees, bougainvillea and endless ABBA tunes? Perhaps on a Friday night when the lights are low - and you’re looking out for a place to go?

Mamma Mia! The Party will launch next September, but tickets go on sale this Tuesday - and we predict a surge in demand. Find out more and tap your inner dancing queen right here.
