The hit TV show from award-winning national treasure Kay Mellor (creator of Band of Gold, The Syndicate and In The Club) is bursting onto the stage in the Fat Friends the musical UK Tour with original music by Nick Lloyd Webber.

This hugely entertaining musical toured the UK to a rapturous response from critics and sell-out audiences in 2017 and is based on the hit ITV show Fat Friends, which starred James Corden and Ruth Jones.

Fat Friends The Musical UK Tour reunites our favourite foodie friends as they are put through their Zumba paces at their local slimming club, whilst Kelly fantasises about fitting into the wedding dress of her dreams. Full of hope, humour, love and weight loss, the show delivers a tasty treat of fun and laughter and encourages us all, as the final song sings, to Love Who You Are!  

Packed full of warmth, life and weight loss this new stage show reunites our favourite foodie friends in an eagerly anticipated musical brimming with hope, humour and heart.
