Christmas has come early – everyone’s favourite festive film will soon be coming to life with a UK tour!

A live concert tour of Love Actually is set to hit the UK this December, with a full orchestra performing the score of the much-loved seasonal movie as it plays on a huge screen.

The Richard Curtis film originally hit cinemas in 2003 and became a firm seasonal favourite with its depiction of ten separate stories which interweave in the run-up to Christmas.

Now, it’s set to fill audiences with the festive spirit once more as a full orchestra plays the score alongside the film in theatres across the UK. Here’s all you need to know.

When is the Love Actually live tour and where is it taking place?

The Love Actually live tour is taking place at concert halls and theatres across the UK this December. The dates and venues are as follows.

  • 1st December – Manchester Bridgewater Hall
  • 2nd December – Bristol Colston Hall
  • 3rd December – Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
  • 4th December – Birmingham Symphony Hall
  • 5th December – Edinburgh Usher Hall

How much are tickets and when do they go on sale?

Tickets go on general sale this Thursday (21 September) and you can buy them here. A pre-sale for Ticketmaster customers is set to take place on Wednesday (20 September).

For all venue apart from London, tickets are priced at £65, £49.50, and £39.50.

The tour comes after a mini Love Actually sequel was released for Comic Relief earlier this year which caught up with the characters of the film 14 years after the original was first released.
Fans LOVED a glimpse at the lives of their favourite characters, including Rowan Atkinson’s hilarious shop assistant role and finding out what Sam was up to now he’s all grown up.
So we can’t wait to sing and dance along to some of the film’s biggest hits! Now, we just need our very own Hugh Grant to attend with…
