From the 2022 Fat Friends – The Musical tour cast to all the upcoming dates and venues, this is your guide to the show on the road.

Fat Friends – The Musical is based on the hit TV show Fat Friends, which starred James Corden and Ruth Jones, and is written by Kay Mellor, who also created the TV show, with original music and songs by Nicholas Lloyd Webber.
