The girls are back – with even more laughter, more joy, more songs – and bigger iced buns!
Bill Kenwright presents Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s Calendar Girls the Musical
Inspired by the true story of the Calendar Girls.
Following the death of a much-loved husband, a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute are prompted to do an extraordinary thing and set about creating a nude calendar to raise money for charity.
Starring Laurie Brett (EastEnders), Maureen Nolan (The Nolans), Lyn Paul (The New Seekers), Helen Pearson (Hollyoaks), and Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyles War) as the ladies, turn preconceptions upside down, but are they prepared for the emotional and personal ramifications they will face as they each come in to bloom?! 
The story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon: a million copycat calendars, a record-breaking movie, stage play and now a musical written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth which coined the term "craughing" – the act of crying and laughing at the same time!
With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for Blood Cancer UK and prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.
