UPDATE: The Show Must Go On! will be broadcast on SkyArts on 18 July at 8pm. Over 600,000 views were recorded from its week-long stream on YouTube in June.

Ahead of The Show Must Go On! concerts at the Palace Theatre, the Theatre Support Fund+ will be livestreaming the final performance worldwide. The Show Must Go On! is at the Palace Theatre from 2 - 6 June, with a live broadcast on 6 June at 7pm.

The Show Must Go On! will be recorded by National Theatre Live, and you can discover all shows on the National Theatre's own streaming service here. The stream will be available to watch live, as though you are at the Palace Theatre. The show will then stay online to watch for a further seven days. 

'We wanted to give audiences who missed out on tickets and theatre fans worldwide the opportunity to watch and be a part of this celebration of the West End, in this once in a lifetime concert!" said Chris Marcus and Damien Stanton from Theatre Support Fund+. "Our 'The Show Must Go On!' campaign has been supported by people from 72 countries so we are delighted to be working with 'The Shows Must Go On' YouTube channel and NT Live on bringing this broadcast to people's homes all over the world." 

The initiative has now raised over £1 million for charities, raising money for Acting For Others and the Fleabag Support Fund.
