All profits from the single will go to Theatre Support Fund+ who will distribute the profits to Acting For Others, The Fleabag Support Fund and the NHS COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.

William Huke and Ellie Sayles, recent Royal Central School of Speech and Drama graduates also feature in the track.

Writer and producer of the track Joe McNeice said today,

“We couldn’t have done this without the tireless efforts of everyone involved, and the dedication of our creative team. Not to mention the singers, who either trekked through London to come to the studio or pulled out all the stops to get professional standard recordings to us remotely, people were just overwhelmingly generous with their support for the project, and I think that’s testament to the fact that everyone in our industry is absolutely desperate to do anything they can to get us all back to doing what we love.

It’s an incredibly volatile time and there are days where the future feels paper thin, so we just wanted to spread some festive cheer and hopefully raise a bit of cash for the Theatre Support Fund+ to raise monies for those struggling in the industry in these times. They have been an amazing support system to many so far and I hope our single can help many more.”

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 via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.
