25 – 29 July 2023 – Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

Willy Russell’s legendary Blood Brothers returns to the Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre, for one week only from Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 July with nightly performances plus three afternoon matinee performances added due to demand.


The captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences, is theatrical legend in its own right.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning Blood Brothers. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail).

The superb score includes Bright New DayMarilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Experience the unforgettable tale of Mrs Johnstone, a young mother deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children. In-order to make ends meet she takes a job as a housekeeper, leading to unimaginable consequences.

It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show’s shattering climax.


A sensational production packed with show stopping music and remarkable staging makes Blood Brothers an enthralling night of entertainment.
