Heartbeat Of Home is coming to London

It’s been almost 25 years since Riverdance swept the world and now, its producers are bringing their latest dance sensation to London.

Today it was announced that due to popular demand, Heartbeat Of Home will be returning to the West End and playing at Piccadilly Theatre from September this year.

Heartbeat Of Home – the dance and music extravaganza, embracing flavours and cultures from around the world – showcases 33 world-class dancers and live musicians from Ireland, USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Argentina and Spain. Taking influence from its performers’ backgrounds, it uses traditional Irish, Latin, Hip-Hop, Afro-Cuban and Contemporary music and dance to create a melting pot of entertainment that people from all over the world can connect to.

This unique show enjoyed sold-out performances at the London Palladium earlier this year and has wowed audiences in Dublin, North America, China and Germany.

Produced by Moya Doherty, conceived and directed by John McColgan with award-winning Irish composer, Brian Byrne, concept development and lyrics by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor and choreography by David Bolger.

About the show’s extended run, director John McColgan said: “We are thrilled that Heartbeat Of Home is heading to the West End this Autumn. This is a show that fuses together Irish dance with flamenco, tap dancing, tango, salsa and hip hop. We want audiences to come out of the show energized and uplifted by this multicultural dance and music spectacle. We can’t wait to be back in London!”

Get ready to tap, tap, tap away and get your tickets!

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.

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.
