January is typically a quiet month, allowing us all to recover from the festivities and settle into a new year. There is no better time to don wellies and hats and go for a refreshing stomp in the many green spaces we are blessed with in Wimbledon! It’s also a great time to catch a show or visit a museum, here are a few local suggestions for the coming month…
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat was the first of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musicals, seen by an estimated 26 million people around the world.
Bill Kenwright’s production of this famous family musical is coming to Wimbledon this month for 5 days only, with new choreography and even more explosive colour!
Telling the story of Joseph and the coat of many colours, this sparkling musical is bursting with the old favourite songs, including Any Dream Will Do, Jacob and Sons, Go, Go, Go Joseph, Close Every Door To Me and many more.
