As with all our venues, tables are allocated in the order in which people book. At The Strand, we are selling tickets at 2 different price levels:
STANDARD £20.00 - These include our very best seats in the front row, but also some seats towards the back of the room. All the tables have a clear view of the stage and are unrestricted.
RESTRICTED £10.00 - These seats are less optimal, and may involve partial restrictions, for example, you may have a side view or your view of the stage may be slightly restricted by a pillar. Restricted tickets are priced to take into account these issues.

Join Gary Williams and friends from the West End for this special benefit concert, with all proceeds going to the Theatre MAD – The Make A Difference Trust.

The friends from the West End helping Gary give you a night to remember will be Joe StilgoeSarah EydenBounder & Cad & Greg Scott

Described as “old school virtuosity,” by Time Out, star of the West End’s ‘Rat Pack’ Gary Williams celebrates some of Hollywood’s greatest musical moments. Dipping into pop, bossa nova and swing ‘At The Movies’ relives classic Hollywood moments from Mary Poppins, Love Actually, Toy Story, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the Jungle Book and Elvis Presley’s Viva Las Vegas. ‘At the Movies’ spans Hollywood music from the 1930s through to the 70s including the hits of Fred Astaire, Stevie Wonder, the Bee Gees, Joni Mitchell, Louis Armstrong, Peggy Lee and Walt Disney. The London Evening Standard described Gary as “the UKs leading standard bearer for the super-cool era” and Oscar winning composer Don Black said, “In a world of Pop Idol mediocrity Gary Williams shines like a dazzling beacon.”

Singer, broadcaster and author Gary Williams has been described as “a true song stylist” by London What’s On and “the UK’s leading standard bearer for the supercool era” by the London Evening Standard. The star of the West End’s “Rat Pack” is a favourite with big bands and concert orchestras throughout the world, from the BBC Concert Orchestra to the Melbourne Symphony. As a broadcaster he’s presented and written shows for BBC Radio 2, Jazz FM and The Wireless where he hosts the weekly show: Legends of Las Vegas. His book on stagecraft has been described as “an invaluable guide” by Playbill.

Gary is the recipient the Outstanding Support Award from children’s charity When You Wish Upon A Star and was recently given the RNLI’s Bronze Award. In recognition of his work for the Caron Keating Foundation he was invited by the Prime Minister to Downing Street.

In 2017 Gary was profiled in the Sunday Times’ Fame and Fortune section.

He’s recorded for the Reader’s Digest ‘Timeless Classics’ series, with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia for ‘What A Carry On’, the Syd Lawrence Orchestra and ten solo albums. ‘Gary Williams Meet Frank Sinatra’ was Jazz FM’s Album of the Week and has been released in Japan along with ‘Let There Be Love – A tribute to Nat King Cole’. He’s recorded three albums at London’s Abbey Road studios, a live album in Brazil, and a big band Christmas album ‘Big Band Wonderland’. His albums prompted Oscar winning lyricist Don Black to say “In a world of Pop Idol mediocrity Gary Williams shines like a dazzling beacon.”

“Gary was terrific. Lovely voice, yes, but a wonderful sense of humour too and he made everyone in the room feel special… It’s a brilliant example of how cabaret should be done.”
Debra Craine from The Times
