Come From Away London announces closing date!

Posted on 1 July 2022

Today’s news is bittersweet! On this Canada Day, our favourite islanders, Come From Away, have announced, that they will be extending their current run until 7 January 2023. However, they have also revealed that this will be the date of the final performance. It was just a matter of weeks ago that the Broadway production announced its own closing date. Make sure you don’t miss this incredible musical!

About Come From Away

Come From Away is a touching story based on the true events that occurred when the US closed the air space and many planes were diverted to a small town called Gander, Newfoundland, following the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks. The musical tells us what happens when these planes were unexpectedly diverted and nearly 7000 passengers needed to be taken in. Witness how the community pulled together to accommodate them and what happened during this horrendous real-life event.
