NEWS: West End Unplugged Concerts Announced

The concerts will take place every Wednesday from the 9th to the 30th September.

It has been announced that a line up of West End’s most well-loved singers will perform alongside some of theatre’s top musicians in West End
Unplugged (live from L-Acoustics Creations), through a series of four streamed charity concerts.

With Covid-19 having dealt a powerful blow on the theatre industry across the UK, West End Unplugged will help raise money for three charities that help the most in need across the entertainment industry.

The series is presented by choreographer Anthony Van Last and Music Director Ben Goddard and will be a combination of chat and music which will be a mixture of show tunes and some of the performers’ personal favourite songs.

Guest stars in the concerts are set to include Mazz Murray, Alice Fearn, Sandra Marvin, Hugh Maynard, Aisha Jawando, Richard Fleeshman and Celinde Schoenmaker, Tim Howar, Siobhan McCarthy, Joe Stilgoe, Hanna Waddingham, David Bedella, Cavin Cornwall and Katie Brayben.

Everyone involved, from the performers to all of the technicians and technical equipment suppliers, have come together and given their
time for free to mount these concerts.

“All funds raised on the day will benefit three amazing charities: Backup-The Technical Theatre Charity, Help Musicians UK, Theatre Artists Fund,” says theatre sound designer and the shows’ producer, Bobby Aitken. “We feel that between them, these three charities best represent everyone in our theatre family.”

The concerts will be free to watch but those who tune in will be able to donate.

West End Unplugged will take place every Wednesday from the 9th to the 30th September and will be available to watch here.
