Collabro

After the success of last year’s huge sell-out theatre tour, Collabro are going back on the road with a mammoth 51 dates across the UK.

Collabro, the world’s most successful musical theatre group, met in 2014 for their first rehearsal at a London pub, just a month later went on to rouse the whole of Hammersmith Apollo into a standing ovation during their first ever public performance of Stars for the Britain’s Got Talent judges.

Having triumphed in their semi-final heat with over 63% of the votes, they then won the overall competition with one of the biggest majorities ever. This subsequently led to them joining Simon Cowell’s label Syco, and hence becoming label-mates with the likes of One Direction, Little Mix, Susan Boyle and Il Divo.
