Love Actually, the star-studded rom-com that has become a Christmas classic, will tour the UK in winter 2022 with a full orchestra performing its soundtrack live to screen.
Love Actually In Concert is becoming an annual festive tradition for many, having garnered sold out audiences in previous years, with the Bournemouth Echo commenting ‘… the whole performance was simply spectacular, enhancing the magic of this classic Christmas movie tenfold’, and the York Press stating in its 5* review ‘The live orchestra works to enhance this experience - and what a joyful one it is.’
The 2022 tour will begin at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, before calling at Southend, Cardiff, Bath, Glasgow, Sheffield, Edinburgh, York, the London Eventim Apollo, Hull, Nottingham, and Birmingham before its finale in Manchester.
