Fat Friends--The Musical

On tour

The hit TV show Fat Friends from award-winning Kay Mellor has burst onto the stage in a brilliant new musical. Read more …

Packed full of hope, humour, love and weight loss, this new stage show serves up a night full of laughter and audiences are loving it!


The critical consensus

Fat Friends remains true to its working-class roots but doesn’t make fun of anyone and gives a heart-warming message that you don’t have to be a size 8 to be attractive. Love and happiness comes in all shapes and sizes – and the world is a better place for that.

****(*)Mike Smith, The Edinburgh Reporter, 20/04/2018

It's harmless, energetic fun.

***(*)(*)Imogen Rowe, Edinburgh Guide, 20/04/2018

Fat Friends The Musical might not be the kind of show you see over and over again, but if you’re looking for a fun, feel-good night out then you can’t go too far wrong with what is an enjoyable production.

***(*)(*)Sarah Moyes, All Edinburgh Theatre, 20/04/2018

Theatre doesn’t always have to be clever to be enjoyable. Fat Friends: The Musical is unashamedly twee; it may not be an intellectual workout for its audience but is nonetheless a feel-good night of entertainment.

****(*)Fraser MacDonald, The Reviews Hub, 20/04/2018

While it may have charm, Fat Friends relies on tried-and-tested formulas, which ultimately inhibit any real conversation about weight loss.
