West End production of Matilda confirms details of Children in Need gala

It has been announced that the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical will hold a special gala performance in aid of BBC Children in Need on Tuesday 4th November 2014. 

The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Sir Terry Wogan with a special appearance from the charity’s mascot, Pudsey. BBC Radio 2 presenters and celebrities will be in attendance alongside members of the public. At least 50% of the proceeds from this performance will benefit the BBC Children in Need Appeal, and its work with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Catherine Mallyon (the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Executive Director) said: “We are thrilled that our wonderful Matilda The Musical will be playing a part in this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal. Matilda’s story resonates so strongly with the vision of this annual fund raising event, so it is great that we can help support its important work. We look forward to welcoming the BBC and new audiences to what will be a magical Gala performance.”

Gareth Hydes (Head of Editorial at BBC Children in Need) said: “We are delighted to be working with Matilda The Musical on this very special gala alongside BBC Radio 2. It’s sure to be a great evening whilst raising lots of money to support disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”

Tickets are already on sale via SEE tickets.
