Billy Elliot at the Palace Theatre

Billy Elliot at the Palace Theatre

Now celebrating 10 extraordinary years in London’s West End, Billy Elliot the Musical, comes to Manchester.

29 November 2016 – 28 January 2017

Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/’85 miners’ strike, Billy Elliot is the inspirational story of a young boy’s struggle against the odds to make his dream come true.

Follow Billy’s journey as he stumbles out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.

Featuring a timeless score by Elton John, sensational dance and a powerful story that has captivated millions around the world, Billy Elliot the Musical is a funny, uplifting and spectacular theatrical experience that will stay with you forever.

Further details are sparse, but if you watch the video, you’ll see lots of large parading heads, tongues, some watermelon and of course, Es Vedrà, which tells us very little about what to expect.
