News: West End Bares announces new online global streaming event

Following ten spectacular years raising money for the Make A Difference Trust, annual fundraiser West End Bares announces a one-off online streaming event on Sunday 10 January at 8pm.

The event sees a host of the best of the West End and beyond take to the virtual stage from homes and studios around the world – all filmed in accordance with Covid safety guidelines.

West End Bares: Turned On will feature brand new content, along with guest appearances from Graham Norton, Michelle Visage, Tom Allen, Todrick Hall, Michael Auger and Amy Hart.

The production is directed by Will Lucas, with choreography from Jenny Legg (9 to 5), Aaron Jenkins (Wicked), Fletcher Dobinson (Cats) and David Grewcock (Singin’ In The Rain).

West End Bares benefits the Make A Difference Trust, a UK based charity with a vision of a world free from HIV and AIDS.  Since their first scintillating show in 2010, West End Bares has raised over £350,000.

This year, the charity has revived and repurposed their hardship fund into the Covid-19 Emergency Fund, to help the theatre community directly, by providing Emergency Hardship Grants for those on stage and off who are struggling financially due to theatre closures and the monies raised will go to the Emergency fund as well as to fund HIV work.
