The West End production of Stomp is to close after 15 years in London.

Following a ten-year run at the Ambassadors Theatre, the show, which incorporates dance and percussion using everyday instruments, will have its final performance on 7th January 2018.

Stomp was first performed in Edinburgh in 1991, and moved to Sadler's Wells in London in 1994, winning the Olivier Award for Best Choreography. It transferred to New York the following year before beginning its West End run at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2002, transferring to its current home in September 2007.

The creators of Stomp, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, said: "We want to emphasise that we don't consider this the end of Stomp here; we actually feel it's going to be good for the show to take a break, reconfigure, reinvent and return at some point in the future in a different London venue, where we can present the show in a way that is more in keeping with its original ethos."

Details of any further London run for Stomp are yet to be confirmed.

Stomp has plans to continue touring the globe, with dates lined up across Europe, Australia and India.

Stomp Tickets are available now.
