ExCeL London is to host the UK’s first musical theatre fan convention this year.
Musical Con, which takes place from 22-23 October, will see thousands of theatre enthusiasts come together for a weekend-long celebration of musicals.
Over the weekend, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the stars, celebrate the shows, and learn from professionals. The event will feature a cosplay competition, fan meetups, musical lip-sync battles and show sing-alongs.
Ambassadors for the event are West End superstars Aimie Atkinson, Kerry Ellis, Alice Fearn, Ben Forster, Jodie Steele, Trevor Dion Nicholas, Omari Douglas, Shanay Holmes, Jenna Russell and Layton Williams.
Over 30 special guests have also been announced, including female musical theatre supergroup SVN, with others still to be announced.
Musical Con will be organised by West End Musical Productions with the support of the Society of London Theatre (SOLT).
Emma De Souza, head of marketing and communications at SOLT, said: “We are delighted to support this incredible convention which we look forward to becoming a staple of the West End’s annual events calendar.”
