December 20, 2021

Merton Live!, the event which showcases the best young local talent from across the borough, is set to return in 2022.

It will be the third time it has been held and will feature gymnastic displays, to dance routines and musical performances.

The show takes place on Sunday 6 February 2022 at the New Wimbledon Theatre and will also feature local dance troupe Urban Dance City fresh from filming for a TV show which will be aired in April 2022.

An action-packed day for all the family is promised. There will be live stage shows from midday until 5pm and lots of fun activities going on around the theatre.

All money raised will go towards supporting Wimbledon Guild who are a community charity in Merton offering practical help and personal support, so no one in our community has to face life’s challenges alone.

Tickets cost £5.50 for an Adult, £4.50 for a Child (under 3’s go free).

You can book in advance for fast-track entry.

Nick Parr, theatre director, New Wimbledon Theatre says, “New Wimbledon Theatre has been at the heart of our local community for 111 years and Merton Live! 2022 continues our brilliant partnership with Wimbledon Guild which we hope will raise much needed funds for the charity and provide a fabulous family day out. We want the theatre to be open to everyone – so come inside and peek behind the curtains into the magical world of theatre.”

Wendy, Wimbledon Guild Chief Executive adds, “We’re delighted that Merton Live! is back to showcase local talent and I look forward to welcoming people from across the borough who are sure to be entertained and impressed by the young talent we have on our doorstep.”
