What is The Show Must Go On about?
The Show Must Go On is a campaign that was set up following the closures of theatres on 16 March 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The Theatre Support Fund+ was set up with the aim of donating to three charities: Acting For Others, Fleabag Support Fund and the NHS COVID-19 Urgent Appeal. Money was made via donations and the selling of t-shirts, tote bags, mugs, face masks, etc.
The Show Must Go On concert series will be a celebration of the West End, showcasing their talents whilst bringing the theatre community together, and all whilst raising money for those in the industry who are in need during these hard times.
