THE SPA, BRIDLINGTON will be one of the venues included in the 2014 tour of Blood Brothers. It will be the first time the venue has hosted a touring musical.
Following sell out seasons in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Japan, the international smash hit musical Blood Brothers continues to tour the UK. The production will run for eight performances over six days from Monday 21st to Saturday 26th April 2014 and includes Easter Monday.
Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe. Scooping up no less than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, Blood Brothers is simply unmissable and unbeatable.
This epic tale of Liverpool life written by Willy Russell ran in London’s West End for 24 years and has been touring the UK since 1995.
Andrew Aldis, general manager at The Spa, said. “I’m delighted to be making this announcement. It’s taken four years of preparation to reach the point where we can make this announcement and, for me personally, it holds special significance as Blood Brothers was the first musical I saw in the West End.”
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader, East Riding of Yorkshire Council said, “The Spa Bridlington is the exclusive home of the Yorkshire International Business Convention, the venue management produce their own shows and the venue is now the place to go to see touring musicals in the East Riding.”
“This will be a great economic boost for the region and demonstrates how the refurbishment of The Spa Bridlington places it at the heart of the regeneration of the area.”
Blood Brothers is at The Spa Bridlington from Monday 21st to Saturday 26th April 2014, including matinee performances.
Tickets go on sale from 9am Thursday 19th December 2013 priced from £17.50.
