I'm discovering Southampton along with you!
Event: -
From 2000-2005 Fat Friends followed the lives of several members of a local Leeds' slimming club group, now the premise is reborn - bigger and louder than ever. Fat Friends: The Musical still explores the sometimes mad world of the slimming club, but with song and dance to bring it all to life. TV show creator Kay Mellor is still behind the helm, while composer and songwriter Nick Lloyd Webber (yes, that's Andrew Lloyd Webber's son) takes charge of the music. Fat Friends: The Musical will be at the Mayflower Theatre from February 5th till February 10th.

Kelly is getting married. She's happy and comfortable with herself and the slimming club is the last thing on her mind - that is until she can't manage to do up the wedding dress of her dreams. So with a dress two sizes too small, Kelly gives in to her mother's pleas to drop a few pounds for the big day. But then it's also time for the Super Slimmer competition, and you know things aren't going to go exactly as planned.

There are a lot of laughs, but the musical is also heartwarming and filled with a lot of love, much like the original television show.
