This December, a ground-breaking new event, SIGNAL, takes over The Hospital Club's Oak Room. This free concert - the first in a planned series of SIGNAL events - showcases some of the best and boldest new British musical theatre. A curated selection of composers, lyricists and songwriters, present songs from shows that are currently being written. Helped by a selection of West End performers and accompanied by a live house band, SIGNAL looks to showcase the breadth and talent of those currently developing new British musical theatre.

Curated and hosted by top London musical theatre director Adam Lenson and featuring a fusion of musical styles, including rock, folk, electronica and R&B, this is an evening for those who love musicals and more importantly, those who think they don't.

Adam Lenson says: "I have long been looking for a chance to showcase new British musical theatre in a setting that is separate and insulated from any theatre or existing development pathway and I'm grateful to The Hospital Club for giving us this opportunity. I hope SIGNAL can give writers a safe space to present work regardless of tone, style or form and truly experiment and engage with audiences. Do join us in what will be a very relaxed and informal setting in the heart of London's West End to check out the future of new British musical theatre".

For SIGNAL's debut takeover of The Hospital Club, the evening will showcase world premiere material which has never been performed live before.
