'Love Actually' in Concert
Revisit the classic Christmas-themed British rom-com with a live score.
UPDATE: OCTOBER 25, 2019 — Due to popular demand, Hamer Hall has added a fourth Love Actually in Concert show at 6pm on Sunday, December 22. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday, October 28 — don't sleep on it.
When the end of the year hits, do you get 'Christmas is All Around', as sung by Bill Nighy, stuck in your head? Have you ever held up a piece of cardboard to tell the object of your affection that, to you, they're perfect? Does your idea of getting festive involve watching Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley, Rowan Atkinson and Martin Freeman, all in the same movie?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you clearly adore everyone's favourite Christmas-themed British rom-com, its high-profile cast and its seasonal humour. And, you've probably watched the beloved flick every December since it was first released in cinemas back in 2003. That's a perfectly acceptable routine, and one that's shared by many. But this year, you can do one better.
A huge success during its 2017 and 2018 tours of the UK (to the surprise of absolutely no one), 'Love Actually' in Concert is finally making its way to Australia — and, to the festive delight of Melburnians, to Hamer Hall at 3.30pm and 7.30pm on Sunday, December 15, and at 1pm on Sunday, December 22. Revisit the Richard Curtis-written and -directed film you already know and treasure, step through its interweaved Yuletide stories of romance, and hear a live orchestra play the movie's soundtrack.
Tickets are on sale now — and, yes, Christmas (and love) will be all around you.
