Tim Live

Heads-up London! Tim’s hairy toes touch down in the UK briefly next month and accordingly he’s been cajoled into putting on a one-off show at the Arts Theatre on Tuesday 3rd October. (He loves performing in London, so the cajoling was not exactly arduous).

This is a rare chance to see Tim perform at such an intimate UK venue. If you’ve missed his lyrical gymnastics, mellifluous Aussie tones, baby blues, pleasingly tousled mane and that mischievous grin… he’ll spend 70 splendid minutes deftly bashing a baby-grand for your delectation.

Tim Minchin for one night only
Tuesday 3rd October at 7.30pm

The Arts Theatre, Great Newport Street, LONDON

Tickets are on sale right here right now! £20 each

UPDATE(10:12am): From the Arts Theatre: “There are still tickets left, our website is having trouble keeping up with Tim’s greatness. We’re working on it. Please keep trying or call the Box Office – 02078368463”.

Sorry – this gig has now SOLD OUT
