About this event

Featuring an incredible live band, sensational singers and all the flesh you've come to expect from the West End's sexiest fundraiser, WEST END BARES invites you to the BIGGEST and BAREST music gig you'll ever see.

Celebrating the sexiest tracks from some of the world's most iconic music artists, you'll have no choice but to roll with it, shake your groove thing and lose yourself in the music as WEST END BARES brings sexy back 2018!

Fresh from her Tony nominated Broadway debut, Eva Noblezada will open TOP OFF THE POPS singing a brand new song written by returning favourites Mark Anderson and Luke Di Somma who have penned a true anthem of an opening number.

The show will feature sizzling choreography from Tommy Wade-Smith (Book of Mormon, We Will Rock You), Racky Plews (American Idiot, Footloose, Knights of the Rose), Chris Whittaker (Seussical, Judy!, Top Hat), Matt Overfield (Motown the Musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Tommy), Callum Aylott (Dreamgirls, The Illustionists, West Side Story), Matt Krazn (Chicago, Cats), Will Lucas (Wicked, Cats), Joanna Goodwin (Sunset Boulevard, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Barnum) and more.

Jerry Mitchell said ...

"Music gets everybody in the mood and I can't wait for the West End to turn it up and rock out for Bares in London this year with the sexiest tracks and the sexiest dancers.

I never thought that what we started in Splash in New York in 1992 would be fast approaching its 10th birthday in London next year - FULLOUT!

What we do together really does make a difference so get your tickets and get ready to party!".

WEST END BARES combines the naughtiness of burlesque along with the spectacle of the West End and will once again unite the entertainment industry for a glittering display of talent, tease and tunes, with a host of celebrity guests.

Last year's sold-out performances, hosted by Graham Norton, raised £57,633 and featured performances by Olivier Award winner Rebecca Trehearn, DREAMGIRLS' Marisha Wallace and special guest hosts Summer Strallen, Adam Garcia, Dianne Pilkington, Tom Allen, Mark Gatiss, Ian Hallard, Celinde Schoenmaker and Oliver Savile.

This year's performers and celebrity guests from the worlds of stage and music will be announced later in the autumn.

Previous celebrity supporters have included Eddie Izzard, Dame Judi Dench, Michelle Visage, Samantha Bond, Sheridan Smith, Paul O'Grady, John Barrowman, Ramin Karimloo, Bianca Del Rio, Joe Lycett and Beverley Knight.

WEST END BARES are proud to be partnering with 100 Wardour St for this year's exclusive After Party where you can continue to celebrate with the cast of the show.

Tickets for this party cost £10 and are only available to buy when you buy a ticket for either of the 7pm or 9.30pm shows (they are included as part of the package for VIP ticket purchases).

Once again, there is limited availability for the After Party and when the tickets are gone, they're gone - so don't miss out!

Note: 2 performances at 7pm and 9-30pm
