Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s return from 28 November

Published 23 October 2020

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the award-winning feel good musical sensation, is thrilled to announce today that it will return with social distancing to the Apollo Theatre from 28 November, celebrating its 3rd birthday in the West End. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s return will be the first full-book musical to re-open in the West End this Autumn.

Nica Burns, Producer of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie said:

“Like everyone else in the UK, year 11 at Mayfield High School is back to school and coping with COVID-19 and the challenges of personalising their facemasks within school rules… We are delighted to welcome back our pre-lockdown leading performers with the addition of Phil Nichol guest starring as Hugo/ Loco Chanelle.  To keep them safe, our brilliant cast and the backstage team will be tested for COVID every 48 hours.  In a change of schedule, we will now be playing 8 shows a week Wednesday to Sunday with ticket prices remaining unchanged.

We are only able to open such a big cast show with so few seats thanks to Oliver Dowden and the DCMS Culture Recovery Fund grant.  Huge thanks to them – you should have heard the cheers from the cast when they received the news! It is wonderful to be able to welcome back our cast, backstage crew and all our fantastic freelancers who together make the production.”

Capacity at the Apollo Theatre has been reduced to circa 50% to comply with COVID-19 Secure guidelines with socially distanced seats plus robust risk mitigation.  Our preventative measures include:

  • Health questionnaire to be emailed 48 hours in advance of the performance
  • Contactless tickets
  • Compulsory facemasks
  • Hand sanitisation stations throughout the building
  • Click and Collect bar App
  • Deep clean and building sanitation
  • Additional entrances and exits
  • Supporting NHS Track and Trace

We are also delighted to be part of the See it Safely scheme run by SOLT and UK Theatre. This scheme supports theatres by providing a toolkit and practical help and training to ensure that they are following the latest Covid secure guidelines. When audiences go into a venue displaying the See it Safely mark they can feel confident that all the correct safety measures in place.

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. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
