We celebrated the opening night of our brand new musical and welcomed a host of stars along the green carpet.

A green carpet replaced the traditional red carpet for the opening of our football-inspired show, directed by Gregory Doran.

The show’s creative team all turned out for the opening: David Walliams, who wrote the novel; scriptwriter Mark Ravenhill, and Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers who wrote the music.

They were joined by comedians David Baddiel and Alan Carr, Actor Ray Fearon, Singer Natalie Imbruglia, and singer-songwriter and broadcaster Cerys Matthews.
