An Evening For Mental Wellbeing On Behalf Of Mind And CALM

Published 29 May 2020

The Show Must Go Onlinewill present an event on Monday 1 June from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Organised by Jack Baldwin and Liam Jeavons, the evening is free to view, with all donations going towards the mental health charity Mind and CALM. Compèred by Mike Shephard, the evening will feature a mix of performance, stand up and poetry, with writing by Jade Anouka, Ella Duffy and Caoilinn Hughes, and performances by Rose Leslie, James Atherton amongst others.

The event can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/8jehd1RR9Bk; and to donate: https://www.sponsorme.co.uk/jackbaldwin/evening4mentalwellbeing.aspx

Jack Baldwin and Liam Jeavons, said today, “It was important to us to put this evening together, as we, like so many others, have both been directly affected by the issues which led to these charities being established. All of us, and indeed all charities, are under huge strain at the moment and we thought this event would be a small way of helping – hopefully helping the charities with a lot of donations – but also helping the audience with some free entertainment and escape. It’s a really exciting and eclectic bill: there’s some serious drama, light sketches, poetry, prose, dark comedy, stand-up from a really wonderful group of performers, writers and directors. Everyone involved has given their talent, time and energy for free so that every donation will go to the charities, split equally between them.”

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
