With major West End shows such as Footloose, Rock of Ages, We Will Rock You and The Rocky Horror Picture Show already scheduled for next year along with the premiere of Bring It On The Musical next month, the city theatre in Broadway is bringing Blood Brothers to its stage once more in March next year - and using it as a springboard to launch its Members Club.

The much loved musical - which has enjoyed successful runs at the city theatre in the past - is part of an incredible line–up of shows included in the new Winter/Spring season with household names such as Jimmy Carr, Marti Pellow, Rhod Gilbert, stars from Strictly Come Dancing and the magical pantomime Aladdin starring Rufus Hound on their way.

The Theatre Club Membership is an initiative to thank and reward loyal customers for all their support by unlocking extra special benefits to those that join including, discounts on selected shows, invites to VIP events and guest nights.
