Mamma Mia! The Party, an immersive theatrical dining experience is to open at the O2 in late Spring 2019 in a specially designed venue.

Photo: Dewynters Executive Producer Bjorn Ulvaeus saw audiences at Mamma Mia! having a good time and getting into the party mood by the end of the show,  he thought to himself, “What if this could continue somewhere else?” The obvious place would be in a taverna on the island of Skopelos, where most exteriors of the first Mamma Mia!! film were shot.  This imagined and wonderfully exotic Greek taverna – and its equally exotic landlord Nikos, his family and friends – became the home of Mamma Mia! the Party, which first opened in Stockholm in January 2016 where it is now in its third sold-out year.

Led by Steve Tompkins of architects Haworth Tompkins, work has begun on transforming one of the venues within The O2 into Nikos’ Taverna, and guests will feel as if they’re right in the heart of a Greek island paradise, sitting around tables in the taverna’s courtyard complete with a fountain, amongst olive trees and bougainvillea.  While the story of Nikos and his family plays out in front of them, an audience of around 500 people will be able to eat great Mediterranean food, drink, and even have the opportunity to dance along to ABBA songs.

Björn Ulvaeus said of Mamma Mia! -The Party’s future London home, “We have long admired The O2 and the huge entertainment success it has become under the ownership and management of AEG. We believe bringing Mamma Mia! thye Party to The O2 will add to this already vibrant cultural destination and provide the perfect location for our exciting new show.”

Tickets will go on sale in Autumn 2018
