‘Love Actually’ to tour live in concert with a full orchestra

The concert tour will hit the road across the UK later this year

Christmas rom-com Love Actually is set to screen later this year across the UK with a live orchestra performing composer Craig Armstrong’s score.

The 2003 film, which stars Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson and Keira Knightley, among others, follows a group of interlinked individuals and their love lives during the festive season.

Following previous tours, the film is set to hit the road once again this winter, starting on December 2 in Bath before hitting a number of stops including Glasgow, Edinburgh, York, London and Manchester, later concluding on December 15 in Birmingham.

“That’s a really difficult question,” he said. “I think the naked people should be wearing more clothes.”

Back in 2017, meanwhile, a special 10-minute sequel for Red Nose Day was released, which saw cast members including Bill Nighy, Knightley, Liam Neeson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson and Martine McCutcheon all return.

However, the likes of Martin Freeman, Laura Linney and Rodrigo Santoro did not reprise their roles.
