Kinky Boots and Diana Award mark National Kindness Day

Published March 9, 2017

The Diana Award are partnering with the UK’s huge hearted hit Kinky Boots for National Kindness Day, which takes place on Friday 31 March 2017 to remember Princess Diana and her values of kindness as we approach the 20th anniversary of her death.

A new microsite has been launched today encouraging the nation to get involved. The Diana Award is looking to inspire and harness 20,000 tangible acts of kindness throughout 2017, which will be logged on this new microsite.

In the lead-up to National Kindness Day, a special gala performance of the Olivier award winning Kinky Boots will be held on Wednesday 29 March at the Adelphi Theatre in aid of The Diana Award.  The money raised will go towards their successful peer to peer anti-bullying programme which empowers young people to tackle bullying in their schools and communities.

National Kindness Day has been created by The Diana Award, the charity legacy to Princess Diana’s belief that young people have the power to change the world. Now in its third year, The Diana Award is encouraging people, from across the UK, to do something kind for someone else in remembrance of Princess Diana to celebrate her values of compassion, kindness and service to others, irrespective of their culture, race or background.

Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, Producers of Kinky Boots say: “We are delighted that Kinky Boots is partnering with National Kindness Day and The Diana Award. This great cause speaks to the very heart of what Kinky Boots is about: love and acceptance.

“We hope that by working with The Diana Award we can help spread the word that you can truly change the world when you change your mind.”

Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre has become a favourite with UK theatregoers, having won every major Best Musical award. Kinky Boots has won three Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry who plays Lola.
