The cream of music, comedy and theatre will come together in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, at the iconic London Palladium, for the 82nd annual Royal Variety Performance.
Introducing the acts in his own inimitable style will be this year’s host, award-winning comedian Michael McIntyre.
Commenting on the star-studded line-up, Michael said: “I am unbelievably excited to be hosting The Royal Variety Performance this year at the London Palladium in its centenary year. It is a dream come true to be introducing the likes of Take That, Cheryl Cole and Prince Charles’s own personal booking, N-Dubz.”
Fresh from their reunion, Take That will be performing on the show as a five-piece for the first time since 1994, treating fans to two songs.
Singing sensation Cheryl Cole will take to the stage with an exclusive performance of The Flood, taken from her second number one solo album.
And urban trio N-Dubz will be rapping for the Royals, as they make their Variety Performance debut.
An all-star comedy line-up includes routines from the Liverpool’s king of comedy John Bishop; Edinburgh Fringe Festival Best Newcomer, Sarah Millican; new funniest kid on the block, Jack Whitehall and everyone’s favourite East End geezer, Micky Flanagan.
A host of theatre’s brightest stars will also share the stage. Celebrating its 25th anniversary the cast of Les Miserables will perform a medley of songs from the smash hit musical. Danielle Hope, the leading lady from the Wizard Of Oz, will deliver what is sure to be an enchanting performance.
The Royal Variety Performance is an annual charity event in aid of the Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund. It will be shown on BBC One in December.
