It’s been a while since the heavy metal doors slammed on the inmates of HMP Larkhall for the last time, but now those bad girls are back and, boy, are they making a song and dance about it.

Bad Girls The Musical, currently previewing at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End, is teaming up with Stonewall for a special fundraising benefit night on 6th September.

The event will raise money for the gay equality charity’s campaigning work around homophobic bullying and lesbian health.

The musical features all the show’s favourite characters, including Nikki Wade, Helen Stewart, ‘The Two Julies,’ Yvonne Atkins, Shell Dockley and dastardly screws Jim Fenner, and Sylvia ‘Bodybag’ Hollamby (played by Helen Fraser, who starred in the TV series).

It promises to be a great night out for everyone.

Tickets for the Stonewall benefit night cost £50 and include a top-price theatre seat, post-show drinks and the chance to meet the show’s cast.

Tickets are limited for this special fundraising event and they are already being snapped up.

“This is a great opportunity to be one of the first to see the newest and most anticipated West End musical, meet the cast and help raise vital funds for some of Stonewall’s most important campaigns all at once!” Stonewall’s events manager, Michaela Greene, told

“It’ll be a great night for fans of the show, or those who want to play their part in helping our crucial work.”

Tickets for the event can be bought on the Stonewall website or by phoning 0207 593 1873.
