The variety show will have eight performances at the Royal Festival Hall from the 7th to the 11th December.

Senbla and Roast Productions in partnership with Comic Relief have today announced a brand new festive show which will be curated by Richard Curtis (Love Actually,
Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary) and directed by Daniel Raggett (Accidental Death of an Anarchist, West End; ANNA X, West End).

With tickets set to go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 19 July, it was confirmed that a percentage of ticket sales will go to Comic Relief to support projects changing lives across the UK and around the world.

Through a partnership with Comic Relief, Christmas Actually will be using the power of entertainment to help raise funds for the charity during the festive period. Richard Curtis is co-founder of Comic Relief, and the charity has raised over £1.5 billion to support projects that tackle poverty in the UK and around the world during that time.

The evening will feature a combination of live music, Christmas stories, poetry and comedy suitable for the whole family. It will unfold against the backdrop of live illustrations from some of the world’s most well-known artists and illustrators, and will feature some of the finest Christmas classics performed by a live band, powerful real-life stories and moving poetry brought to life by the multi-talented cast, as well as Christmas cracker jokes read by celebrities on screen, children’s hilarious letters to Father Christmas and a good old-fashioned singalong.

Full cast and creative team will be announced soon.

Richard Curtis said: “I hope this will be the perfect Christmas show: noisy and emotional, and full of surprises and jokes with some proper celebrity sparkle. And I know it will help
support brilliant projects changing people’s lives, both in the UK and around the world, 365 days a year.”
