Calendar Girls The Musical will be performed at the Bristol Hippodrome this summer.

The Yorkshire women have raised almost £5million for the charity Bloodwise since starting the campaign..

Band Take That has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and Tim has won the Laurence Olivier Mastercard Award for Best New Musical.
