The National Lottery’s Big Night Of Musicals will bring together, for the first time, the biggest shows from the world of musical theatre for one night only at the AO Arena Manchester on Monday 24th January 2022 at 7.30pm.
The event, hosted by actor and comedian Jason Manford, will see spectacular performances from West End and touring musicals including Dear Evan Hansen, Bat out of Hell, The Lion King, Back to the Future, The Drifters Girl, Beauty and the Beast, School of Rock, Dreamgirls, The Wiz and Frozen with more to be announced.
Tickets are on general release and all of them are free for National Lottery players as a 'thank you' for funding over 2,000 theatres through the Covid crisis thanks to the £30m they raise every week for Good Causes.
Theatre enthusiasts can reserve up to four free tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. A £2 booking fee applies per person upon booking and proof of purchase of a National Lottery product is required on the day of the event by the ticket booker. Participating musicals may be subject to change and the show may be filmed for broadcast.
Doors open at 5.45pm.
Please allow sufficient time to go through the Covid check & venue security.
You will need to be seated by 7.15pm, as the show is being filmed for broadcast.
Latecomers may not be admitted or may be reseated.
The show takes place between 7.30pm and 9.00 pm with no interval and no re-entry, so it may not be suitable for very young children.
Renowned for his hilarious observations and loveable, friendly delivery, Jason has been a firm favourite with comedy fans of all ages since his first solo stand-up show earned him huge critical acclaim and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Newcomer Award back in 2005. ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), ‘The Nightly Show’ (ITV1), ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’ (ITV1), ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Have I Got News For You’, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic. Jason Manford was #1 in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians of 2018 list.
