TAKE That musical Never Forget is coming to Ipswich, The Evening Star can reveal today.

The West End show will play the Ipswich Regent theatre from Tuesday, September 15 to Saturday, September 19.

Written by BAFTA award winner Danny Brocklehurst, Guy Jones and Ed Curtis, Never Forget follows the roller coaster journey of young hero Ash, who finds himself caught between fame, fortune and friendship as he struggles to realise his dreams.

David Mansfield, general manager at the Regent, said: “Take That's latest album The Circus has become the fastest album to sell one million copies this millennium and since they reformed their success has gone from strength to strength.

“Take That are touring this summer and while they aren't performing in Ipswich at the moment, having the Take That musical is surely the next best thing.

“Never Forget is a fantastically funny and feel-good show, packed full of Take That hits.”
