There’s a reason Mamma Mia is one of the longest-running shows in the West End. Celebrating the relationship between a mother and her daughter, the feel-good musical is funny, jovial and packed full of catchy tunes. With songs by 70s pop sensation ABBA, singalong to popular hits like ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Take a Chance on Me’, ‘The Winner Takes It All’ and of course ‘Mamma Mia’.

Based on the hit film Magic Mike, Magic Mike Live is sure to put a smile on your mum’s face. Described as ‘the sexiest, steamiest show in town’, Channing Tatum’s racy stage adaption has it all – dance, acrobatics, and plenty of topless men. Hello eye candy!
