The West End will come to Blackpool for a special online streaming event.

Stars of the stage will perform at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool for a one-off digital show.

West End in Blackpool will see Blackpool homegrown stars Jodie Prenger, Tom Lister, Kelsey-Beth Crossley, Ashley Luke Lloyd and Laura Wilson perform numbers from West End musicals alongside a West End Ensemble of performers predominantly from Blackpool.

They will be joined by the Leading Lady and Leading Man of the West End Musical ‘Top Hat’ – Charlotte Gooch and Alan Birkett – who will perform a captivating American Smooth dance.

The show will celebrate the rich history of the Winter Gardens and its past performers to create a unique show which combines documentary coverage with stunning performances and visuals.

Performances will include Sondheim’s classic ‘Send in the Clowns’, Sinatra’s uplifting ‘All Of me’, Shirley Bassey’s enchanting (Where Do I Begin) ‘Love Story’, Fred Astaire’s romantic ‘Cheek to Cheek’, ABBA’s power-ballad ‘Winner Takes It All’, Ethel Merman’s invigorating ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’ and Queen’s haunting melody ‘The Show Must Go On’.
