Tim Minchin

Award-winning comedian, actor and composer Tim Minchin heads to the Opera House Blackpool on November 20.

Billed as Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs, it features material from all corners of Minchin’s eclectic—often iconoclastic—repertoire.

First performed in 2019, it was his first UK tour in eight years and the 80,000 tickets sold out over a year in advance.

Minchin has been celebrated globally for the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical. He also wrote music and lyrics for a musical adaption of Groundhog Day, which after a limited run at The Old Vic in London in 2016, debuted on Broadway in April 2017 and won the Olivier for Best Musical in 2017.

Last November he released his first studio solo album, Apart Together.
