There’s nothing more uplifting during the Winter than heading to the beloved stage musical, MAMMA MIA! If you love the film, the stage adaptation is even better - bringing the Greek island to the West End stage for over 24 years. MAMMA MIA! Is a tale of love, laughter, and friendship with a huge catalouge of ABBA favourites also thrown in there too! You won’t be able to resist the infectious joy of this show.
