A gala concert will be held on June 30, with the former newsreader presenting a range of performers to mark the milestone.

The theatre’s chief executive Adrian Jackson will conduct The City Concert Orchestra and a line up of original West End stars, including Claire Moore and Alasdair Harvey.

A spokesperson said: “During the past 25 years, Claire has played the majority of female leads in the West End.

“She was Christine in the original cast of Phantom of the Opera alongside Sarah Brightman and created the role of Elen in Boublil & Schonberg’s Miss Saigon to name but a few.

“Alasdair Harvey created the role of The Beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and has starred in many musicals during the last few decades – he is currently playing Khashoggi in We Will Rock You at London’s Dominion Theatre.”

A number of other stars of the stage will appear during the gala tribute to the musicals.

Tickets cost £25 and can be booked online at or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
