Theatre Trip to see Tina Turner the Musical

6 June 2024

On the 6th June 2024, a group of SGV users, volunteers and supporters gathered at 11:00 am.  We had light refreshments at Bigbury Hub before the coach arrived. With anticipation of excitement, everybody looked forward to the musical performance that celebrated the life and career of the legendary Tina Turner.

The coach journey was scenic, it took us through the vibrant and busy streets of London. We enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the capital.  On our arrival at the Aldwych theatre, we were ushered to our seats by a charming theatre staff representative. After settling into our seats, we eagerly awaited for the start of the show and feasted on chocs and sweets. During the interval we were also treated with lovely ice creams.

The musical exceeds our expectations – great to learn about the thrilling and emotional journey through Tina’s life in the rock and roll arena. Every scene was a testament to Tina Turner’s incredible resilience and talent. The actress portraying Tina delivered electrifying performance of her popular hits like “Proud Mary”, “River Deep – Mountain High” and “What love got to do with it”.  The choreography, set design and musical arrangements were top notch, immersing the audience in the highs and lows of Tina’s remarkable career.  The atmosphere was moving.

As the musical drew to close, the energy in the theatre reached its peak.  The final performance was nothing short of spectacular, turning the audience to their feet.  Everyone who was abled stood up to dance, turning the theatre into a joyous celebration of Tina Turner’s legacy.  The sight of hundreds of people dancing and singing to “Simply the best” was magical.

The closing applause was thunderous, and the smiles on faces of the performers and audience alike. What an unforgettable experience we all shared!  It was a fantastic ending to a show that celebrated not just a music icon, but the indomitable spirit of a woman who overcome incredible odds to become a legend. The excitement and joyfulness lingered on with our return journey home.
