The money raised through BBC Children in Need’s 2020 Appeal will help support local charities and projects which are providing essential frontline help to children and young people in communities throughout the UK. The SIX Touring cast are reuniting for Children in Need for the first time since March this year, when theatres were forced to close due to the pandemic.
The sold-out UK tour is set to make its royal return on 4 December, with a six-week Christmas season at The Lowry in Salford, followed by two weeks at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre in January 2021, with further dates soon to be announced. The West End production is scheduled to resume performances from Friday 5 December at its new home, The Lyric Theatre in London.
Theatre fans can also look forward to performances from the cast from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s upcoming stage show Cinderella while the mastermind cast of The Play That Goes Wrong will be up to all sorts of mischief, all in the name of charity.
Hosted by TV presenters Mel Giedroyc and Alex Scott alongside comedians Stephen Mangan and Chris Ramsey, the evening is set to be a memorable one. Be sure to tune in!
