Kinky Boots is embarking on a UK wide tour and will arrive at the Bristol Hippodrome in early 2019 – and tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday).

Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre in London has become a favourite with theatre goers and has won three Olivier awards, a London Evening Standard BBC Radio 2 Audience Award as well as three WhatsOnStage Awards.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With a story by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, and songs by Grammy and Tony-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical teaches audience that it is possible to change the world if you change your mind.

Book writer, Harvey Fierstein said: “The inspiring story of Kinky Boots will soon complete its full circle journey from Northampton to the silver screen to Broadway and London and now, at last, back home as it embarks on a national UK tour.

“It has been an absolute thrill to witness the giant heart of our show raise audiences up out of their seats in glamorous joy night after night in the West End.”

“Kinky Boots is very close to my heart, and I am really looking forward to taking this British musical all over the UK.”

This spectacular show is sure to leave people with a smile on their face and a bounce in their step.
