The Barricade Boys Guest Performers Announced

Posted 13th November 2017

Today we reveal the galaxy of special guests who will be joining The Barricade Boys – a different star from the West End or the world of music each night!

There’s only one month to go until The Barricade Boys arrive at The Other Palace Studio with their Christmas Cabaret, ringing in the season with show tunes and Christmas favourites, for the best party atmosphere in town!

With fabulous harmonies, incredible vocals, dashing good looks and fantastic personalities, the stars of Les Misérables, The Barricade Boys, are planning a Christmas party packed with a stocking full of festive family favourites – including I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday, Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree and Merry Christmas Everyone – as they celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.

After sell-out performances in London’s West End, an appearance at the St James Theatre on Broadway and many international dates, The Barricade Boys secure their place as theatreland’s newest and most exciting male vocal group with a three-week season, The Barricade Boys Christmas Cabaret, at The Other Palace from Tue 5 – Sat 23 Dec.


Two lucky people will win the chance to appear on stage with The Barricade Boys at the two shows on Sat 23 Dec. All you need to do to be in with a chance is tweet a Youtube video link singing a Christmas song to @BarricadeBoys. The Barricade Boys will decide the winners by Mon 11 Dec.
