Wednesday 19 November marked Twitter’s first ever #LoveTheatre day. The 24 hour event was run in partnership with Guardian Culture Professionals Network and gave an opportunity for arts companies and cultural institutions across the globe to come together on Twitter to celebrate theatre and give followers an exclusive backstage insight into each production.
Matilda The Musical held a Gala Performance in aid of Children in Need on Tuesday. The event was attended by Sir Terry Wogan and Pudsey Bear, as well as a number of celebrity guests. A cheque was presented for just over £30,000, with Mr Wormwood declaring as he handed the cheque over: “All I learned, I learned from Terry”.
