Graham Norton returns to host West End Bares!

The television star returns for West End Bares: Ruby Strippers in aid of Make a Difference Trust




The Make A Difference Trust, a UK-based charity with a vision of a world free from HIV and AIDS, is delighted to announce that following two triumphant years, Graham Norton will return as host of this year’s West End Bares: Ruby Strippers at the Novello Theatre on 29 October. 


The Make A Difference Trust is also thrilled to announce the first of Graham’s star co-hosts: Adam Garcia (The Exorcist, Murder on the Orient Express, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Tap Dogs, Saturday Night Fever, Coyote Ugly), Summer Strallen (Young Frankenstein, Love Never Dies, The Sound of Music, Hollyoaks), Dianne Pilkington (Young Frankenstein, Mamma Mia!, Wicked, Taboo), Tom Allen (Live At The Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Just A Minute), Celinde Schoenmaker (The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables) and Oliver Savile (Wicked, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Mamma Mia!). With more celebrity guests and West End stars to be announced.


They will join the previously announced Olivier Award winning Rebecca Trehearn, who will open the show with a performance of an exclusive track written especially for the occasion by Mark Anderson.


Join the much-loved characters of Oz for an extraordinary night which will see over 100 of the hottest performers from the West End take to the stage to combine the naughtiness of burlesque with the magic of the West End. 


All of the money raised will go to The Make A Difference Trust to fund HIV and AIDS projects that raise awareness, educate and provide care and support in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa. For a (cheeky!) look behind the scenes of the Ruby Slippers photo shoot, click here
