Direct from the West End, Ghost the Musical is at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall until Saturday, August 24.

The production took up residence at the venue on August 13 and is based on the hugely popular 1990 film, that starred the late Patrick Swayze, plus Demi Moore and an Oscar-winning Whoopi Goldberg.

Ghost the Musical is directed by the Tony award-winning Matthew Warchus (Matilda, Art) and has music and lyrics by Grammy award-winning Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard. It features the iconic song Unchained Melody.

The UK tour is being produced by David Ian Productions and the Ambassador Theatre Group and is under license from Colin Ingram and Hello Entertainment/David Garfinkle in association with Paramount Pictures.
