We regret to inform you that due to recent and ongoing Covid-19 related events and their direct and detrimental impact on the production of Fat Friends – the Musical, this show has sadly had to postpone its scheduled performances at the Theatre Royal Nottingham and we are now looking in to rescheduling the production with alternative dates. 

We and the Producers were very much looking forward to delighting audiences again with this delicious treat of a feel good musical, that addresses such important and timely issues and was such a celebrated hit when it first toured the UK in 2018. We would like to thank audiences for their understanding and support and we are now working to find a way to bring the show back to the Theatre Royal and sell out audiences again, at a time and in circumstances, that will allow Fat Friends to return, bigger and better than ever! 

All ticket-holders will be contacted in the coming days to confirm new dates for the tour, at which point you will be able to accept a ticket transfer or request a refund. 


The “weight” is over! A star-studded Fat Friends – The Musical is back. Bigger and better than ever!

Following the massive success of its first outing, Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends returns with a fantastic star cast of Lee Mead (Holby, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Sherrie Hewson (Coronation Street, Benidorm), Jessica Ellis (Hollyoaks), Angela Lonsdale (Coronation Street, The Syndicate) and direct from his acclaimed West End run in Hairspray, Les Dennis (Legally Blonde, Extras, Coronation Street).

Based on the highly popular ITV series, with great new music from Nick Lloyd Webber, this hugely entertaining musical 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

Serving up the tasty treat of a feel-good night out for every body, Fat Friends – The Musical is full of fun and huge hit!
