TV impressionist Alistair McGowan, EastEnder Tameka Empson and former Coronation Street star Wendi Peters will unite with Madness frontman Suggs for the one off gala concert to mark the 10th anniversary of Our House.

Held in aid of Help For Heroes, the concert will take place on Sunday 11 November at the Savoy theatre.

Star of Cabaret and Little Shop Of Horrors McGowan, The Mystery Of Edwin Drood’s Peters and original Our House cast member Empson, best known as EastEnders’ Kim Fox, will be joined on the night by a cast including Chris Carswell, Miria Parvin, Jack Shalloo, Jenny Fitzpatrick, Matt Cross, Greg Airey, Georgie Ashford, Lauren Appleby, Kara Bayer, Gabrielle Brooks, Dougie Carter, Debbie Jenkins, Paul Kemble, Lewis Krik, Kayleigh Louise-Smith, Michael Melmoe, Jenny O’Leary, Carryl Thomas and Gavin Wilkinson.

The Madness musical, which first opened in 2002 winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, tells Tim Firth’s witty and romantic tale of Joe Casey and the night he commits a petty crime to impress his girlfriend Sarah.

Reuniting director Matthew Warchus and designer Rob Howell, the acclaimed creative team behind West End hits Matilda The Musical and Ghost The Musical, the anniversary concert will feature Madness songs including It Must Be Love, Baggy Trousers, My Girl, Embarrassment, The Sun And The Rain, Driving In My Car and, of course, Our House.
