The star-studded cast will be supported by the Stagebox choir, performing a mix of traditional and contemporary Christmas carols and songs to get the audience into the festive spirit.

Stagebox general manager Jasmine Quinlan-Gardner said: “This is a huge moment for our wonderful members who will be representing us on stage this December. “After such limited interaction last Christmas, we’re looking forward to lighting up Cadogan Hall with a festive show and can’t wait for performance.”

‘West End Does: Christmas’ takes place at 2.30pm and 6.30pm on Sunday December 19.
