Reigning on Broadway and in the West End, the international smash hit musical Six is coming to Peterborough!
Winner of the 2022 Tony Award for Best Original Score, the 2022 WhatsOnStage Award for Best West End Show and a Gold- Disk winning album, this sell-out Tudor take- off has ‘an incredibly strong and powerful message’ (The Australian) and is ‘pure entertainment’ (The New York Times).
