Jason Manford fronts musicals show

The National Lottery is shining a light on the magic of musical theatre by hosting another musical extravaganza at the AO Arena, Manchester, February 27.

Hosted by Jason Manford, it will feature performances from best-selling West End musicals and touring shows including We Will Rock You, Wicked, The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Matilda The Musical and Aspects of Love featuring Michael Ball.

The show serves as a thank you to National Lottery players who have helped tens of thousands of arts projects across the UK and supported more than 2,000 theatres through the COVID crisis.

12,000 tickets have been available free (with a £2 booking fee) to National Lottery players on a first-come, first-served basis.
