BRITAIN’S GOT BHANGRA

RETURNING FOR A NEW UK TOUR


OPENING AT MANCHESTER PALACE THEATRE ON 3 SEPTEMBER 2015

 

After acclaimed runs in 2010 and 2011, the five-star hit musical Britain’s Got Bhangra will return for a UK Tour this Autumn in a brand new production, opening at Manchester Palace Theatre on Thursday 3 September, with a press night on Monday 7 September.

 

Charting the rise of British Bhangra from the sequin-clad 80s through to the RnB fusion in today’s charts, Britain’s Got Bhangra follows Twinkle, a farmer’s son from Punjab, India who comes to England to make a better living for himself and his wife. A gifted singer, he goes from making a living as a van driver in Southall to becoming a rising star in the fast-growing Bhangra music scene. Winner of the ‘People’s Favourite Musical’ at the 2010 Offie Awards, this imaginative musical takes a journey though multicultural Britain and the evolution of a music scene.
