West End Musical, Fat Friends, is coming to Hull New Theatre



Fat Friends – The Musical returns to Hull New Theatre next summer and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.
Following the massive success of its first outing, Kay Mellor’s stage show based on the hit TV series, will burst onto the stage from 18 – 23 July, 2022.

Join the infamous group of loveable characters as they are put through their Zumba paces at their local branch of Super Slimmers by the lovelorn Lauren whilst Kelly fantasises about fitting into the wedding dress of her dreams.

The cast includes West End and TV favourite, Lee Mead and promises to be a feel-good night out for everybody, with original music by Nick Lloyd Webber.

Fat Friends hit television screens in 2000 following the lives of a group of overweight friends as they struggled with the absurdities of modern dieting.

Running for five years on ITV, the show starred Alison Steadman, Sheridan Smith and Lisa Riley and launched the careers of James Corden and Ruth Jones.

Packed full of warmth, the stage show serves up a tasty treat full of hope, humour, love and weight loss, delivers a night full of laughter and encourages us all to Love Who You Are! It’s sure to be a huge hit.
