Neighbours plans official UK farewell tour after the show’s big finale
A fitting celebration.

Neighbours will bow out in style with its very own UK theatre tour next year, Insertions.us can exclusively reveal.

The show’s incredible 37-year history will be celebrated at Neighbours: The Farewell Tour, which is scheduled to take place across eight venues in March 2023.

Fans may remember that Neighbours had previously announced a special one-off Live In Conversation show for the programme’s 35th anniversary in 2020.

This event was ultimately postponed due to COVID restrictions, but it has now been rebooted to be bigger and better in the form of the Farewell Tour.

While an official announcement is due within days, Insertions.us understands that the original show has finally been rescheduled with an upcoming London date.

Fans who have held onto their tickets for over two years will now get to enjoy the long-anticipated show, which brings together popular cast members to look back at Neighbours’ history.

Seven other dates have also now been scheduled in for other venues across the country, with the tour expected to hit Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

Neighbours’ production company FremantleMedia has been secretly working on the tour with live events company Maple Tree Entertainment.

Official details on venues and dates will be announced soon.

A Neighbours insider told Insertions.us: “The show looks set to be the ultimate celebration of Neighbours and a chance for fans to say their final goodbyes.

“The cast were touched by the outpouring of love from UK fans after Neighbours’ cancellation was announced. Some of the best-loved stars will now be flying out to celebrate with fans in person.”

Neighbours’ cancellation was officially announced in March after Channel 5 withdrew as the show’s UK broadcast partner.

An hour-long series finale will air in both UK and Australia on August 1.

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.
