The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical will hold a special Gala performance in aid of BBC Children in Need on Tuesday 4 November 2014.

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Executive Director, Catherine Mallyon said: “We are thrilled that our wonderful Matilda The Musical will be playing a part in this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal. Matilda’s story resonates so strongly with the vision of this annual fund raising event, so it is great that we can help support its important work. We look forward to welcoming the BBC and new audiences to what will be a magical Gala performance.”

Gareth Hydes, Head of Editorial at BBC Children in Need, said: “We are delighted to be working with Matilda The Musical on this very special gala alongside BBC Radio 2. It’s sure to be a great evening whilst raising lots of money to support disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”
