In 2004, Disney teamed up with legendary theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh to produce the stage version of Mary Poppins. Thus began the first creative collaboration between Julian Fellowes (writer of Downton Abbey and Gosford Park) and song-writing duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Honk!, Betty Blue Eyes, Just So, Travels With My Aunt). The result was a West End and Broadway smash-hit, loved by audiences of all ages from all over the world.

To celebrate the current UK tour of Mary Poppins and the 2016 premières of their new stage musicals Half a Sixpence and Wind in the Willows, join for an exclusive evening with writer Julian Fellowes, composer George Stiles and lyricist Anthony Drewe. They will talk about their work, creative process and shed light on the glorious fun of writing a musical!

With songs performed from all three shows by West End actress Caroline Sheen (Grease, Mamma Mia, Les Misérables, Mary Poppins), this one-off unique event will treat ticket holders to a sneak preview of material from Half a Sixpence and Wind in the Willows before both shows open to the public. There will also be an audience Q&A.

The event is in aid of: Weldmar, Polio Plus and Mercury Musical Developments.
