“This exciting production is performed by three of the finest West End singers accompanied by a live ten-piece band recreating Burt Bacharach’s timeless hits.”

Maria added “We are proud to announce that Back to Bacharach have partnered with Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s leading breast cancer charity. Breast Cancer Now supports world-class breast cancer research across the UK and Ireland and believes that if we all act now, by 2050, breast cancer will have taken its last life. That’s why Back to Bacharach are pleased to be supporting this worthy charity by donating £1 from each theatre ticket sold, and committing to raise a minimum of £10,000 by doing so.”
