One of London theatre's hottest events of the year, West End Bares will go online for its 2021 event. Now in its eleventh year, audiences can watch this year's offering of West End Bares online, streaming on 10 January.

West End Bares: Turned On will see West End stars perform one-off routines, recorded in homes and studios around the world. This year, celebrities taking part include Graham Norton, Michelle Visage, Tom Allen, Todrick Hall, Michael Auger and Amy Hart.

Directed by Will Lucas, he spoke of actors' generosity to take part. He said: "After a year when we all missed being onstage and where we've not been able to see loved ones for months at a time, we are delighted to bring a bit of Bares magic to 2021."

Choreography is by 9 to 5's Jenny Legg, Wicked's Aaron Jenkins, Cats' Fletcher Dobinson and Singin' in the Rain's David Grewcock.

Typically, the event raises money for the Make A Difference Trust, supporting those either living with or affected by HIV & AIDS. For 2021, all charitable donations will go to the Covid-19 Emergency Fund, directly helping out of work actors and creatives.

West End Bares: Turned On is available from 10 January. More information can be found here.
