Hamilton to hold fundraising performance for Prince Harry’s charity

First Published 13 July 2018, Last Updated 23 July 2018

Hamilton will hold a fundraising performance for Sentebale, the charity founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, which raises vital funds towards their work with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

Every ticket sold to the evening performance of Hamilton on Wednesday 29th August will raise money for Sentebale. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.

Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh, producers of Hamilton, said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sentebale, the charity founded by The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso, for this special performance of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

“Whilst there has been significant advancement in the treatment and care of HIV, the virus sadly still affects whole communities in many parts of the world, and particularly in southern Africa. We are delighted to help raise funds for this extraordinary cause.”

UNAIDS reports that globally, 1,700 new HIV infections occur every day among young people, and stigma remains a major factor preventing youth accessing lifesaving health services. Despite advancements in treatment and care, young people are lagging behind on multiple fronts — knowledge of HIV, HIV testing, treatment and prevention. It is in this context that Sentebale has developed a youth centred approach to impact the lives of children and young people across southern Africa.

The Olivier, Tony and Grammy Award-winning production of Hamilton originally opened at the Pubic Theatre in New York in 2015. Later that year, the Broadway production opened and, in December 2017, the London production opened at the newly re-built and restored Victoria Palace Theatre. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.

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.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

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.
