Chichester Festival Theatre is to present an outdoor concert featuring stars of the West End.

Chichester Festival Theatre has collaborated with Chichester Cinema at New Park for a special weekend of music and movies.

Taking place at the Drive-In Cinema in Northgate car park between August 28 and 30 will be a number of movie showings including Singin’ in the Rain, Some Like It Hot, Grease, The Greatest Showman, and Pixar’s latest release Onward.

Then on Monday August 31 will be a day of outdoor performances in Family Fun in the Park. Hugh Bonneville will perform a reading of Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog the Forgetful Cat, with actors bringing the stories to life with puppets.

In the evening from 6PM, a line up of West End stars will perform in a concert hosted by Omid Djalili.

Those appearing include Gina Beck, Gabrielle Brooks, Rob Houchen, Julian Ovenden and Giles Terera, joined by CFT Artistic Director Daniel Evans. Songs will include a medley from South Pacific alongside hits from West Side Story, Wicked, The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady.
