West End shows to take part in BBC’s Children in Need 2020
The casts of Six and Mischief Theatre will be performing in this month’s televised charity event.
UPDATE: The Six cast performing are the UK tour queens. This includes Lauren Drew, Maddison Bulleyment, Harriet Watson, Shekinah McFarlane, Jodie Steele and Athena Collins.
Ahead of this month’s televised charity event, the line-up for this year’s Children in Need has been confirmed. The live broadcast will take place on 13 November, with West End casts appearing, as well as performers including Beverley Knight.
The Six queens will perform all together, just a few weeks before the residency at the Lyric Theatre, which now begins on 5 December. The cast of The Goes Wrong Show will also take to the stage; the original brainchilds behind shows such as The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.
Carrie Hope Fletcher will also sing new music from Cinderella, now opening at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in May 2021. Beverley Knight is set to perform too, returning to the West End in Pantoland at the Palladium and then The Drifters Girl at the Garrick Theatre.
Starting in 1980, Children in Need sees celebrities get together to raise money for children in the UK. Since the event started, the annual telethon has raised over £1 billion.
