More Love Actually with a full orchestra dates added

The film will be touring the UK in November and December 2018.

Having sold out its 2017 tour, Love Actually will be screened live across the UK with a full orchestra performing the score live.

Celebrating the holiday season, the tour will launch on Sunday 25 November 2018 in Poole, now running through to 20 December at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and including a stop at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

The new dates are:

27 November 2018 – Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool
20 December 2018 – Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Originally released in 2003, Love Actually is directed by Richard Curtis, and tells ten individual yet overlapping stories of love during the festive period.

The film celebrates a huge cast, including appearances by Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Bill Nighy, Marine McCutcheon, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley, Rowan Atkinson, Martin Freeman, Andrew Lincoln and many more.

 

The film will be screened alongside a performance by a full live orchestra, delivering Craig Armstrong’s score. Armstrong has been awarded a BAFTA for his Achievement In Film Music, having worked on the likes of Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Ray, The Great Gatsby and many more.

Led by the ensemble cast, Love Actually has become a firm festive favourite. Last year’s tour celebrated a new lease of life for the fifteen year old film.
