Football like you’ve never seen it! 

A dynamic, witty celebration of Britain’s national obsession – football.

In words, music and dance, Next Door Dance capture the culture and charisma that unites us all in the nation’s favourite sport – from schoolboy kick-about to international glory, from armchair punditry to match-day commentary – this show has it all!

Passionately performed by four female dancers to a backdrop of catchy songs and vox-pop interviews, The Beautiful Game dynamically portrays all the highs and lows, the artistry and absurdity of football.

Full to the brim with nostalgia, The Beautiful Game will have you casting your mind back to unforgettable goals, match-day rituals and fixtures gone by. Even if you don’t like football, even if you despise football, The Beautiful Game will persuade you of its charms, in a show for all the family, whether a fanatic, an impartial spectator or simply a fan of gripping and entertaining physical theatre.
