Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends musical tour is to have a second outing in the UK and Ireland opening in January 2022 at the Orchard Theatre, Dartford starring Lee Mead.

Fat Friends musical tour

Following a successful tour in 2017 Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends the musical is back from January 2022. Fat Friends musical tour dates and ticket details are shown below.

The show toured the UK to a rapturous response from critics and sell-out audiences in 2017 and after a tough year for all, Kay Mellor feels that it’s the perfect time to bring this feast of a feel-good show back. Kay Mellor said today “Issues of body image and online trolling are more pertinent today than ever and will resonate with people everywhere. Despite this, using song, dance and humour I can guarantee that audiences will leave the show with a smile on their face and feeling better about themselves – something we all need right now. I’m delighted to be remounting Fat Friends the Musical, thrilled to be working with the brilliant and talented Lee Mead and can’t wait for us to bring the show to so many fantastic venues around the UK and Ireland.”

WHAT IS FAT FRIENDS THE MUSICAL ABOUT?

This hugely entertaining musical is based on the hit ITV show Fat Friends, which starred James Corden and Ruth Jones. Fat Friends – The 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. This show of hope, humour, love, and weight loss, delivers a fun night out full of laughter and encourages us all, as the final song sings, to Love Who You Are!
