The producers of the West End’s first ever official musical theatre fan convention are delighted to announce that MUSICAL CON will return to ExCel London in 2023 following two sold out dates in 2022.
MUSICAL CON was visited by over 10,000 musical theatre fans in 2022 and will return for another weekend-long celebration of all things musical theatre on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2023. First release tickets are now on sale and are expected to sell out quickly.
After the overwhelming response from fans at last year’s event, MUSICAL CON 2023 will occupy a larger space within ExCel London and will offer new performances and interviews, discussion panels, meet and greets, photo and signing opportunities with the biggest and brightest West End stars and a huge selection of workshops, masterclasses and talks run by industry professionals, with the line up being announced at a later date. 2023 will also see the return of the hugely popular fan cosplay, lip-sync battles, sing-alongs, plus the Theatreland exhibition and marketplace.
Highlights from last year’s event included performances of ‘Defying Gravity’ from Wicked’s four previous Elphabas, glimpses of new musicals such as SuperYou and The Hope Mill Theatre’s Cinderella, a spotlight on Cameron Mackintosh’s first 50 years of shows, interviews with cast and creatives of & Juliet and Back to the Future, cast reunions of In The Heights and Rent and performances by MUSICAL CON ambassadors Trevor Dion Nicholas, Ben Forster, Alice Fearn and many more.
