SIX: Queens of the Night
We partnered with The Lowry to celebrate SIX, a homegrown histo-remixed pop-concert musical retelling of the lives, fates and personalities of the SIX famed, yet silenced, wives of Henry 8th, direct from the West End. A night of crafts, quizzes and catwalks, decor and dancing, pop music and performers in a celebrative coronation of killer Queens.
A night where everyone was invited to step into the night time and crown theirselves Queen of their own kingdom, seeking no-ones approval but their own!
Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. All this time they’ve been just one word in a stupid rhyme...So they picked up a pen and a microphone...History’s about to get overthrown!

////// More about SIX: The Musical
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75 minute celebration of 21st century sisterly sass-itude. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red. SIX is sure to be the hottest thing on the block since Anne Boleyn’s neck! Coming to The Lowry direct from the West End, a phenomenal future is predicted for the ultimate Queen Revival.
