Happy Days Bring Blue Skies to Bullring…


Press & PR Assistant Ben Wooldridge (@benwooldridge) writes…

Happy Days were certainly here again this week as the cast of Happy Days – A New Musical arrived right in the heart of Birmingham for a fabulous fifties style press call.

Principal cast members Heidi Range of the Sugababes, former Emmerdale star Ben Freeman and the legendary skirt-whipping Cheryl Baker from Bucks Fizz tucked into retro milkshakes, hot-dogs and burgers in the ultra-cool Ed’s Diner in the Bullring’s Selfridges Food Hall where they met members of the press and media to talk about the arrival of the happiest show in town.

This fantastic new production arrives in Birmingham from next week – click here for more info and don’t miss it!
