Neighbours farewell tour announces official details and venues

A little bit of Ramsay Street to the West End.

The Neighbours cast are to make the journey from down under for their hotly-anticipated UK tour.

The Aussie soap’s stars were supposed to make it to London’s West End with the Neighbours: Live in Conversation show in 2020, but the date was postponed due to the pandemic.

Neighbours’ production company FremantleMedia and live events company Maple Tree Entertainment have announced that the original show has been rescheduled, adding a further seven dates throughout the UK for March 2023.

The tour dates include:

Monday, March 6 – Manchester Bridgewater Hall
Wednesday, March 8 – Edinburgh Festival Theatre
Friday, March 10 – Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
Sunday, March 12 – Cardiff St David’s Hall
Tuesday, March 14 – London Palladium Theatre
Thursday, March 16 – Birmingham Symphony Hall
Saturday, March 17 – Brighton Centre
Sunday, March 18 – Southampton Mayflower Theatre

Tickets will be going on general sale at all venues on June 17, with a pre-sale on June 15.

“When Neighbours: Live in Conversation sold out within 24 hours, we knew that the love for the show could see it tour the UK, and there is no better time to take to the road than to mark the end and to honour its rich and lengthy history,” Dean Elliott, producer at Maple Tree Entertainment, said in a statement.

“We can’t wait to put on a show that the fans will love and deserve.”

There will be meet-and-greet opportunities and a Q&A section planned at each location.

In March, Neighbours was cancelled after Channel 5 dropped it from its schedule and the soap failed to secure new funding options.

Now a farewell tour, the theatre production will take place following the beloved soap’s last-ever episode, set to air on August 1 this year.

Ahead of the one-hour finale, the soap is gearing up to tie up some loose ends and welcome back some well-known faces to Ramsay Street.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.
